A good ribs rub recipe can add flavour to a boring meatloaf or chicken. When you have the right mix of ingredients, your dinner is going to be delicious. To get the right mix, start by sauteing the onions, peppers and celery. Then add a bit of salt to the mix. Depending on what kind of flavours you are adding will determine the amount of salt to use.
If you are going to make a ribs rub for pork spare ribs, then you may want to consider a mild version. The ribs rub recipe that I like to make is one that incorporates apple juice, garlic, onion powder, salt, pepper and mustard. This mixture can be blended into a paste with a mixer. In order to make a well-blended mixture, you should add in a liquid such as flour, dry mustard, apple juice and water. The dry mustard adds a nice flavour to the mixture that goes well with the other ingredients. The mixture will need to sit for about an hour so the ingredients can soak up the flavour.
Alternatively, Try A Thicker Rub
You can also choose to make a thicker version of a ribs rub that will have a thicker mix of ingredients. The recipe for the thickest ribs rub calls for onions, carrots, celery, salt, pepper, garlic, oregano, thyme and cayenne pepper. These items need to be mixed with a teaspoon of salt, a quarter teaspoon of garlic powder, and half a teaspoon of pepper. Then you just mix up all of the ingredients and store it in a container so it is ready whenever you need it. This rub also works great with grilled ribeye steak.
When making a Carolina ribs recipe such as this one, you will want to add the mixture to the marinade as soon as you get the meat grilling. This allows the meat to absorb the flavours from the rub mixture as well as the seasonings. This is the best way to avoid having something that is too strong on your taste buds. If you are not going to use the entire mixture right away then cut it up into smaller pieces and add it to the marinade at about forty-five minutes in.
The rub recipe that you make should always be cooked on the grill, not on the table. This is because salt will burn the meat if it is left to cool after being placed on the heat for too long. Most people wait about fifteen to twenty minutes in between placing the ribs on the grill and turning them to cook. You should try to turn the ribs frequently to ensure even cooking all throughout.
To serve your stellar ribs, you will want to place the prepared mixture in a serving dish and top with shredded mild cheddar cheese and a drizzle of Worcestershire sauce. It is best served immediately after being prepared but you can eat it any time you like. The amount of mustard you use will depend on how you like it. A very mild version will be fine in a modest-sized bowl while you will want to use thicker mustard if you prefer a sweeter taste. A teaspoon of paprika is enough to provide the needed peppery flavour in this recipe.
