thyme leaves, fresh 1 Tbsp.
lemon zest, fresh 1 tsp.
orange zest, fresh 1 tsp.
kosher salt 1 tsp.
black pepper, ground 1 tsp.
chili flakes 1 tsp.
cumin, ground 1 Tbsp.
olive oil, extra virgin 3 Tbsp.
how you make it:
1. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
2. Refrigerate until needed.
3. Rub onto pork loin, ribs, or Boston butt. Let sit for 4 hours before cooking.
note from corey: "Pork is a great vehicle for a lot of different seasonings and flavor combinations. It's a difficult meat to master, and requires knowledge of several different cooking techniques to address all of the different cuts. This rub will do well on almost all of them."
