Homemade Pork Rub Seasoning Blend is made from only 8 common pantry ingredients.
Easy to make and store, it’s perfect to have on hand during the summer months for grilling or slow roasting all cuts of pork!
A pantry staple seasoning
I have a huge thing for pork. Specifically, slow roasted fall apart pork like Chile Verde Pork, Fall Off the Bone Pork Ribs and Puerto Rican Rork Roast.
My favorite childhood meal and the one I’d request on birthdays was braised pork chops. And I personally cooked pulled pork to feed 200 guests at my own wedding. All seasoned with this Homemade Pork Rub Seasoning Blend.
It’s such a versatile recipe and can be used for all sorts of things! Definitely a go-to seasoning. Keep a big jar in the cabinet and use it on pork roast, pulled pork, grilled pork chops, seared pork loin and pork ribs, anything!
