This is a marvelous seasoning. It has great depth of flavors. It was easy to make, and the ingredients are easy to come by. I used this seasoning on chicken. The chicken was moist and had a wonderful, light, flavor. It could be very versatile for seasoning other meats. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I will be using it again!

This is delicious, & very easy to make. I used this on pork before stir frying. I also like the fact that it can be frozen for later use. Very good... Thanks!!

A very flavorful seasoning. Easy to make and ingredients that most will have on hand. I used it on a pork tenderloin and cooked it in the rotisserie.
