To be precise, this is my NEW favorite all-purpose spice rub…
I used to have a steady supply of a component of my OLD favorite – which I used to make and give away at Christmas time but my friend who supplied me is no longer able to do so… So I do the next best thing – try to replicate it with whatever ingredients is available locally.
To be honest, I do not know if this is as good as my old one. Then again it hardly matters since I don’t have a choice! Hehehe.
My new recipe –
2 tablespoons chopped dried onion (not powdered)
2 tablespoons coarsely ground black peppercorns (not powdered)
2 tablespoons chopped dried garlic (not powdered)
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon oregano
2 tablespoons sea salt (not iodized)
1 to 2 tablespoons chili flakes
1 tablespoon dried mustard powder
Place all ingredients in a mortar and pound lightly with the pestle. Don’t pulverize so that the texture remains nice and chunky. Mix the spices well. Use 1 to 2 tablespoons of spice for every kilogram of meat, chicken, or fish.
