This is a tasty alternative to the pre-made spice mixes with who-knows-what in them. You can adjust the sodium or heat this way, or like me, add extra cumin or whatever you like. It's equally good on vegetables as it is with meat.
John Wesley "Boog" Powell was an all-star first baseman and American league MVP for the Baltimore Orioles. He now has a BBQ joint right outside Camden Yards, where the Orioles play. I use the rub on just about anything I BBQ. It’s especially good on ribs and smoked butt. I like to put it on a day in advance, if I can.
I posted this recipe for the request of those that are asking what crazy salt is, Recipe #7542. A recipe I adopted. You can add 1 teaspoon of MSG which I'm not a fan of. This are made with dried herbs. Keep this along side the range to use as a salt substitute as needed. It keeps the salt intake down, because when you go to use a teaspoon of salt and use this in its place it you really are using just 1/2 a teaspoon salt. That is a good thing! And Great flavor! Makes a nice gift placed in a pretty jar with a ribbon.
Here's another recipe I found on Allrecipes.com. It was submitted by Joslyn H. She stated: "This Creole seasoning blend is great for seasoning rice, meats, soups and stews, or anything that needs a flavor boost. Also makes a great gift when placed in a decorative jar with recipe attached." I'll be making up a batch of this soon. It looks like a very good blend of spices.
It enhances the flavour of many foods, I live in Egypt and use it often, I always have in the fridge to liven up the taste buds. Ideal condiment for Liver, spaghetti, foul medames (Egyptian fava beans)
From Emeril's New New Orleans Cooking. This is a fairly basic seasoniong mix. If you want hotter, decrease the paprika and increase the cayenne. I wouldn't mess with the black pepper amount, however, since that will change the texture and color of the mix.
This is a delicious all-purpose dry seasoning that is good in spaghetti sauce, chicken and dumplings, in pasta salads, or sprinkled on fresh, ripe sliced tomatoes. It also makes a good Italian Salad Dressing for salads or marinade. Omit salt if you like.
