No need to buy a pork rub when you can make this sweet and spicy rub with only 6 ingredients!
This simple rub is great on pork chops, pork shoulder and pork loin! It's also good on chicken!
Just in time for grilling season comes this easy pork rub recipe! I admit, I have a collection of store bought rubs, they always lure me in. But you know what? It's this simple homemade rub that I turn to time and time again.
With only 6 ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your pantry, you can make this sweet and spicy rub.
This is what I used on my Wood Pellet Smoked Pork Chops!
While this rub is delicious all on it's own, you can also make a Quick and Easy Pork Chop Brine for even more juicy chops!
You only need 6 ingredients for this easy rub!
- Kosher salt.
- Sugar - I like to use either turbinado, demerara or brown sugar. If you are curious about turbinado sugar, here is a good article explaining What is Turbinado Sugar.
- Cayenne pepper.
- Dry mustard.
- Black pepper.
Place all the rub ingredients in a bowl and then whisk together.
That's it! You've just made the best pork rub - how easy was that!
I like to double or event triple the ingredients and keep a jar of it in my pantry. While it is positively delightful on pork, I also use it on chicken. Speaking of chicken, I also have a Chicken Rub recipe for you!
This recipe is so easy to modify! If you like it sweeter, add a little more sugar. Spicier? Add more pepper.
