🧂 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 moisture as you can. Next you need a binder to help the dry rub stick to the meat.
You can use an egg wash, olive oil or even yellow mustard. I prefer to use Olive Oil most of the time. 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.
This spicy dry rub is great for pork chops, tenderloins and even ribs. Just keep in mind that this rub does pack a punch!
I recommend letting the meat rest for at least 30 minutes after you apply the dry rub to let the spices soak into the meat.
This dry rub recipe makes enough for 4-6 pork chops, a couple of racks or ribs or a couple of pork tenderloins. Your mileage may vary depending on the size of the meat and how much dry rub you apply.
