Spice Essential:Awesome Beef Rub by the Tablespoon

Andy Anderson !


I don’t have any images for this spice; however, I keep a tightly-sealed jar of this stuff on hand because I use so much of it.

It’s great when used as a rub on just about any type of beef, and it’s excellent when used as a spice for soups and/or stews. Plus, it’s easy/peasy to make because everything is 1 tablespoon.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
