Texas Spice Rub


Need a gift for someone who likes to grill? Well, just make some of this spice rub and put it in a tin or in a nice jar. This spice rub was part of my gift packages last year and was a hit. This rub will keep up to 3 months in an airtight container and is good on steak, pork, or chicken. You can multiply this recipe as needed, if you are giving this to more than one recipient.

Ingredients
1 cup packed light brown sugar
5 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons chili powder
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon dried mustard
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon paprika

Instructions
1. Combine all the ingredients. Store in an airtight container up to 3 months.
Use 1 tablespoon of spice rub on 8-ounce portion of meat.

Mangia!
