Bring fiery sweet to meat…
Pairing brown sugar rubs with red meats is always a very good idea. The richness of the meat pairs very well with the earthy sweetness of the sugar. Plus the sugar acts as a tenderizer making that steak even more juicy.
But why stop there? This spicy brown sugar rub leans into smoky heat, too, brought to you by the ever-popular chipotle powder. Add in some paprika and earthy chili powder and you have a real flavor-packed rub.Steak is where this rub shines, but it works too on other red meats, pork, and chicken.
- Combine all the spices in a mixing bowl. Stir to evenly combine.
- Use immediately as a barbecue rub or store in an airtight container for future barbecue use.
