Tip of the Day
Spice Up Your Grill
Turn up the heat on your grilled favorites this weekend by experimenting with herbs and spices to make your own rub for cuts of meat, poultry and fish.
You don't need a recipe, just combine flavors that taste good to you, for example:
- Citrus rub: combine grated lemon, orange and/or lime zest with minced garlic and cracked black pepper.
- Pepper-garlic rub: combine garlic powder, cracked black pepper and cayenne pepper.
- Italian rub: combine fresh or dried oregano, basil and rosemary with minced Italian parsley and garlic.
- Herb rub: combine fresh or dried marjoram, thyme and basil.
Keep in mind that flavors usually become more pronounced the longer the seasoning is on the meat.
