Mediterranian Dry Rub

Mediterranean Dry Rub

Dry rubs are a great way to pre-treat meats prior to grilling, frying, or baking. Made from a combination of spices, this mixture captures the essence of Mediterranean flavor. The taste will remind you of foods from Egypt, Lebanon, or Greece.

I usually prep steaks or lamb chops one day prior to grilling. This works great with pork ribs as well.

I used this spice mixture to flavor the meat in my Stuffed Grape Leaves and to prep the lamb in my Spring Grilled Feast. You can make a jar of this in advance and store it indefinitely. Then you can use it to give a Mediterranean taste to any dish.

  • 1/2 Cup Dry Oregano
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 Tablespoons Hungarian Paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon sea salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground coriander
  1. Force the oregano through a strainer with a spoon to grind it extra fine. This will release the flavor and aroma.
  2. Mix all the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Use on meats, in soups, or to make yogurt dip.
