This beef rub is great for beef, pork and lamb. Once you mix the spices they'll keep about 4 months in an airtight jar. When ready to use, just rub into the meat, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate the night before grilling.

Made this last night and rubbed it all over some T-bone steaks before grilling (added the rub about 1 hour before grilling). The finished results was excellent. Read More

I only made one substution because I did not have coriander seed. I used a half teaspoon of ground coriander. I rubbed this on chicken. Really really good. Probably one of the best spice mixtures I've ever made. Sure the title says "beef" but it's excellent on chicken too. Read More

Oh my! This one is a keeper. I had to make it twice because I couldn't believe it. The meat is soooo moist and tender - make extra because it is even better the day after and makes great sandwich meat. Read More

This rub is outstanding for ribs. I'll never go back to BBQ sauce again! Read More

This is amazing! I even left out some of the ingredients the first time and it's still spectacular. I used this rub on a leg of lamb that I was roasting and it enhanced the meat very nicely. The rub is flavorful enough to leave a presence but does not over-power the natural taste of the meat. Great job with this one! Read More

I wasn't as excited about this recipe as others were. I tried it on a London Broil. Maybe I needed a different cut of meat. Read More
