All Gone!

You might remember me posting a rub recipe for chicken. Tonight we used the last of the rub for our steak. I guess I have to make more rub. I think I will share it with my mom this time. I’ve been thinking of making it for Christmas presents for people. I won’t go thinking too far ahead though. I’ll start thinking of that again in September.

Since I know people are reading this blog and some are even commenting (THANK YOU), I was wondering if you know of any good sites that help you learn about good cuts of beef. Nate and I are so confused in the steak department! I think we need to make friends with the butcher at Safeway. I’m always at a loss for good meat cuts that aren’t ridiculously expensive but still taste good. Any suggestions?

Here is the recipe for the rub

All Purpose Spice Rub

source Everyday Food

Ingredients

Makes 1 1/4 cups (enough to season 5 to 10 pounds of meat, poultry, or seafood)

  • 1/3 cup coarse salt
  • 1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 2 tablespoons ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons dried thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients, using your hands to break up the sugar. Store in an airtight container, away from heat and light, up to 6 months.
Corn on the Cob
This is how my mom cooks it and it always turns out wonderful.
Fill up a large pot with water. Add 1 TB sugar to water and then bring the water to a boil.
Add corn when water is boiling. Boil for 8 minutes. Serve corn as desired.
Enjoy!
