This has got to be the absolute best seasoning for pork I have come across. I did this Friday for our weekly get-together and have been feeling guilty all weekend for not sharing it with you sooner. I have used it on ribs and pork chops with great results. On Friday, I made pork kabobs with Granny Smith apples and white onions. It was delish!
Here's the spice rub:
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons (Chinese) five-spice powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon Lowrys seasoned pepper
Mix all ingredients in bowl. Rub spice mixture over meat (about 2-3 pounds) and refrigerate until ready to grill. If desired, you can lightly baste with the molasses glaze below.
1/2 cup catsup
2 tablespoons Grandma's Molasses
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
several dashes bottle hot pepper sauce.
