Ceylon Tea Dry Rub

Slofoodgroup Team October 20, 2021

A Delectable and Unusual Dry Rub for Grilling

Summer may have passed but grilling season is still very much here! If you want to spice up the barbecue game, make your own dry rub and add Ceylon black tea to it. Slofoodgroup's Pekoe Grade Ceylon Black Tea is a loose leaf tea that adds another layer of smokiness and flavor to grilled meat. Use to marinate dark cuts of meat such as beef, pork, or alternatively over portobello mushrooms. Very easy to throw together, this rub is done in 5 minutes. Very important to use brown sugar as the molasses adds moistness and caramelizes the meat as it cooks. Simply use the rub on your favorite cut of meat and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes. Grill and enjoy it!
