Homemade pork rub is a staple in our house but it can be kinda expensive which is why I started making it from scratch. This seasoning mix is easy to make, store, and use. Once you start making it you’ll wonder why you ever purchased it pre-made before! Pork rub is delicious on every cut of pork we have tried it on.
A flavorful, homemade version of pork rub seasoning. It is a mix of cumin, chili, and a few other common household spices.
Homemade Pork Rub Seasoning
- 6 tbsp ground cumin
- 4 tbsp chili powder
- 2 tbsp salt
- 2 tbsp ground coriander
- 1 tbsp paprika
- 2 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 1/2 tsp ground allspice
- 1 1/2 tsp pepper
- Place all ingredients in a clean glass jar.
- Screw the lid of the jar on tight and shake to combine.
- Store in a cool, dry place.
- Shake before each use.
Makes about 18 tablespoons.
- Rub 1-2 tablespoons on half a pound of meat before cooking.
- Mix with water and/or oil to create a marinade.
Pork rub is full of flavor-enhancing goodness without overpowering the natural succulence of the meat. I use it on a variety of pork cuts from chops to tenderloin and each is delicious. James says it would even make warthog edible!
By making your own seasoning you can use high quality ingredients while still making a seasoning that cost less than buying pre-made. It also allows you to eliminated any ingredients that you don’t like and gives you total control over the spiciness of the seasoning.
Have a great day!
