Here's a simple to make Brown Sugar Dry Rub for Pork Ribs, Pork Tenderloins or even Pork Chops. A must for serious Foodies!
I suspect many of you don't bother using dry rubs to season your meat before cooking. You have no idea what you are missing. Adding a dry rub helps enhance the flavor of the meat.
🧂 How to use Dry Rub
Before you apply your dry rub to your meat, make sure you pat your meat down with a paper towel to remove as much of the moisture as you can. Next you need a binder to help the dry rub stick to the meat. You can use Mayonnaise, olive oil or even yellow mustard. I prefer to use Olive Oil as a binder for my Pork Tenderloins.
Another advantage of using a dry rub like this brown sugar-based rub is that it can make a lower-cost cut of meat taste like the higher-priced options.
Once the binder has been applied to the meat, liberally apply the dry rub all over the meat. Make sure you take the proper precautions to not cross-contaminate! I suggest you use one hand to apply the dry rub and the other to rub the dry rub into the meat.
I challenge you to try this dry rub the next time you make ribs or pork tenderloin to see just how it takes the flavor to the next level. Once you try it, you will never go back.
