Go Ahead… Rub It In!

Want to add a bit of a kick to your grilled meat? Try this rub, which is packed with flavor and just the right amount of heat.

CAJUN RUB

Ingredients

* 1 tablespoon dried onion flake

* 1 tablespoon dried garlic flake

* 1 tablespoon black peppercorns

* 1 tablespoon white peppercorns

* 1 tablespoon dried thyme

* 1 tablespoon paprika

* 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano

* 1/2 tablespoon cayenne

* 1/2 tablespoon sandalwood

Preparation

1. In a spice mill, mini food processor, or electric coffee bean grinder, combine all ingredients.

2. Grind to a coarse powder.

3. To the meat selected, apply sea salt to taste, and then apply as much or as little of the rub as you wish – more for more heat, less for less heat. Note: Lesser applications make wine pairing much easier. Suggested wine variety: Zinfandel.
