Flavorful seasoned salt recipe and one to be used again. I was unsure of the sugar but it seemed to add a nice carmel hint when grilled on a nice sirloin steak for hubby and myself. The flavors blended well and this was easy to make from cupboard ingredients. Much nicer than the store bought as I can monitor salt intake. I bet this ould be grat as a rub prior to making soups and stews. I will use it thus when fall comes around again. YUMMY! Made for the Shady Ladies ZWT 2011
