Chef-Boy-I-Be Illinois' Magic Dust

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Chef-Boy-I-Be Illin

From our local newspaper comes this little gem. This grilling rub recipe is from a restaurant in California featured in the "Sideways" movie. It's great on meats, artichokes, asparagus -- just about anything, including fish and chicken. The trick is you must use a blender to reduce to a DUST. This makes a positively MEAN post roast -- rub it on any piece of beef -- chuck, arm or rump -- stick it in a dry crock-pot and let it cook. You will want to drink the gravy!
