Several years ago my husband had to reduce his salt intake. Everything we ate was under scrutiny – and salt was in so many unexpected places! One of the most memorable discoveries for high salt content was a store-bought taco meat seasoning that I used for all kinds of Mexican cooking. Salt was the number one ingredient! So I came up with this alternative rub that really doesn’t need salt adding to it. I usually use it for steak but I’ve also used it for chicken and shrimp!
The recipe is simple, add together these three ingredients in equal parts:
I’ve been known to bulk-buy these ingredients and make up large amounts of this seasoning mix! No need to use your finest smokey Spanish paprika – any kind will do!
Mix them all together and store in a container. When needed, rub both sides of the steak with the mixture and cook on a grill or griddle pan until cooked to your liking.
Keeping a stock of the dry rub mix means you will always have a quick and easy way of adding flavor!
