  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons sea salt

  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano

  • 2 tablespoons dried basil

  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley


    • In a bowl combine all the spices and mix well.

    • Transfer to a spice jar, or mason jar, and store in a cool, dry, dark space until needed.

    • When using coat your meat first with some oil. Then sprinkle the rub over top and rub it into the meat. Make sure it gets everywhere.

    • Pop the meat in the fridge for a couple of hours. For herb rubs I don’t really like to let them set up overnight. It can be a bit overpowering for the meat. So for this particular rub I put it on about 2 hours ahead, no more than 4. That’s just a personal decision.

    • Make sure you take the meat out of the fridge about 30 minutes before grilling. Do not grill cold meat.

  • Can be used on fish, pork or poultry.
