Ingredients

  • 1 cup coarse ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup dehydrated garlic chips
  • 1/3 cup onion powder
  • 3 tbsp paprika
  • 3 tbsp dill seeds
  • 1 orange , zest (See Note 1)

Instructions

  • In a bowl mix the kosher salt, coarse ground black pepper, dehydrated garlic, onion powder, paprika and dill seeds.
  • Using a citrus zester, remove half of an orange's peel, being careful not to get any of the white pith part. We want just the rind's zest and it's essential oil. Place this in the bowl and mix all ingredients together to rub on your meat of choice.
  • This recipe makes 2 1/2 cups. Store in a sealed jar.

Notes

  1. I will often times spread the orange zest on a piece of parchment paper to dry out, allowing the spice blend not to clump up. Although if using right away I do not. Optional usage tip.
