Wine Country Chef Organic BBQ Spice Rub:
This one we threw on a burger. Our son loves to eat them without the bun, and so we put it to the Harry test, is it too overpowering for a kid? Answer, no. It had a nice peppery taste without being “spicy” as Harry likes to say but provides the right amount of subtle pepper flavor. It does have a bite, no kick, but you definitely know there is something special on it. There were a lot of flavors going on, tasted great on a burger, would love to try it on a steak or some other beef. Rub it on all cuts of meat and vegetables, grilled or roasted.
Wine Country Chef Spiced Mustard Rub: This one was a real winner in more ways than one. Gretchen sort of ruled this one out from the beginning, almost didn’t want to try it. But after I bit into that first bite of chicken breast, she gave it a try. Wow! Again, subtle flavors all around, nothing was overpowering. There was a bite of spice in it, and a great flavor of mustard that really made this something unique. Trying this on some grilled salmon is going to be a must in the very near future. Not sure what it is, but all of the organic spices we have tried are just perfect, as they do not overtake the meat!
Wine Country Chef Organic Lemon Pepper Rub:
Since reading Soaked, Slathered and Seasoned, we have been using fresh lemon juice as a base of a lot of our chicken marinades. We just think that lemon goes great as a base for marinades. This spice has some very friendly citrus undertones. The pepper is more of an after taste that lets you know it is there, but doesn’t leave a lot behind. Again, great aroma is added while you eat and the flavor in every bite made this one another winner. A lively blend of herbs and spices that will wake up your recipes! Rub olive oil on chicken, rub with lemon pepper rub, oven roast or grill. A perfect addition to pasta sauces, and compound butters.
