On to the next one: 2014's quick dry rubSomething a little different this time.
Last year, most of my bbq involved my variation on Kansas-city dry rub (will dig out the recipe and post that sometime). And a few weeks ago, I decided to make a new dry rub for this summer - but was in the mood for something more herb-y. Initially I planned to experiment with jamming in some oregano, thyme etc - but in the end, on discovering I didn't really have any of these things to hand, and finding a jar of this:
It was pretty good - I based the measurements purely on the amount of the mixed herbs I had left, and made about a jar.
- 3 table spoons dark brown sugar
- 1 table spoon salt
- 1 table spoon smoked paprika
- 4 table spoons sainsburys mixed herbs
- 1/2 table spoon garlic powder
- 1/2 table spoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon all spice
- 1 table spoon light brown sugar
Basically, just measure the ingredients in a bowl, mix them up and stick them in a jar.
It tasted pretty good - a nice mix of sweet but herb-y. I have since used it on an adhoc roast-potato/tomato/bake thing as well, which worked pretty well (generally, I have found most dry rubs work well as adhoc seasoning of potato wedges/chips/etc.) and of course a mandatory bbq'd chicken (left half new rub, right half the old kansas city variation):
