I use this simple rub on chicken, fish, pork and beef. It's so easy to do- and the results are always great! The key is to have the meat sit in the rub for at least 12 hours. I have shortened the time tho- and it's still good!

How to Make All Purpose Spice Rub

Step-by-Step

  1. This rub will coat/cover 4 large chicken breasts, 6 pork chops, 4 steaks and about 2 lbs of fish.
  2. In a large ziploc bag, measure and add the dry spices and shake to mix. Add meat. Zip bag closed and toss the spices and meat to coat. Add 1 T of olive oil to the bag and seal and shake again.
  3. After the mixture has been in the frig, remove the meat from the bag and discard the bag. I allow the mixture to sit on the meat overnight or all day before we grill the meat.
