  1. Place all ingredients in a covered jar or ziploc bag and shake to evenly blend.
  2. Rub on pork chops, pork tenderloin, or chicken legs or thighs. I find this a little too rich for beef but if you feel adventurous, go for it!
  3. This recipe makes enough for two small whole pork tenderloins or 6-8 chops.
  4. Rub meat with blended spices and allow at least two hours to marinate before grilling or broiling.
