When I reviewed this Mediterranean Spice Rub on my Bacon Wrapped Mediterranean Chicken, I realized just how nice it is to have a spice mix on hand for seasoning purposes. I use a lot of spices and herbs for seasoning, and it takes time to get all the containers out of the pantry…and put them all back when I’m done using them. Of course that led me to the thought that I should make a spice rub of my own with all my favorite, oft-used seasonings. Like, “Duh, Briana.” Why haven’t I done this before??
So here you have it: “Bri’s Basic Spice Rub”. I named it after myself because I didn’t know what else to call it. In typical Briana fashion, it’s a hodge-podge of different cultures all mashed into one flavorful blend. So far I’ve used it on hamburgers, pork chops (recipe for a pork chop dinner is coming next week!), and fried eggs. It’s good stuff, and so versatile.
I had all the ingredients for this spice rub in my pantry already. The only ingredient that you might call a “special” ingredient is the tomato powder. I had some dehydrated tomatoes on hand that we had made from garden tomatoes in our dehydrator a year or two ago, so I ground them up in a coffee grinder to make my tomato powder. This product from Amazon looks like what I used. The tomato powder adds a great flavor, and I do not recommend leaving it out.
This spice rub is a Fuel Pull for Trim Healthy Mamas and can be used in any fuel setting. Tomatoes are something you want to go sort of easy on in an S setting, but the amount used in this rub comes out to a fraction of a teaspoon of tomato powder per serving, so that’s not a concern.
