I have been on a kick of making my own rubs lately. I think the reason being is that my husband is so sensitive to MSG and Sodium Nitrates. But many people don’t realize that when they read the ingredients list and see Celery salt or Celery Juice or anything celery for that matter that in HIGH concentrations Celery acts exactly the same as MSG. And that unfortunately is how companies can market their products MSG free.
Anyhow, we learned the hard way and now it is easier to make my own rubs and seasonings than it is to buy packets at the store.
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup Salt depending on taste
- 1/4 cup garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons onion powder
- 1 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary
- 2 tablespoons dried parsley
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
Place all ingredients into a food processor and mix thoroughly.
Once all chopped and mixed together, place in an airtight container.
Sprinkle generously on steaks for flavor.
