To say that I am an unimaginative chef would the understatement of the year.
When I was approached about trying out Char Crust Dry Rub Seasonings, I got a little excited because frankly, I welcome the opportunity broaden my cooking horizons!
Char Crust dry rub seasonings are a blend of premium herb blends, spices and other natural ingredients that you just rub onto the surface of your raw meat or fish, or you can even sprinkle them over raw vegetables then broil, bake, grill, pan-sear, roast, or sauté. How easy is that?
Char Crust Dry Rub Seasonings come in a variety of flavors, including:
Roasted Garlic Peppercorn features the robust flavor of roasted garlic and onions with the zing of peppercorns and a hint of Worcestershire and lavender. Its versatility has made it a best seller. It complements steaks, lamb, seafood, pork, poultry, and potatoes.
Ginger Teriyaki is a balance of sweet teriyaki, fragrant ginger, plus a tingly touch of wasabi that lends a new dimension and creates a modern teriyaki interpretation. It complements chicken, fish, and steak.
Amazin’ Cajun is a spicy-sweet blend of piquant cayenne pepper, onion, garlic, oregano and a mélange of other Mardi Gras flavors. It brings the sublime heat of New Orleans to catfish, chicken, shrimp, and even “dirty” rice.
All American Barbecue takes the best flavors of American barbecue and blends them into a tangy-sweet, slightly spicy rub. It has rich molasses from Memphis, tangy tomato from Kansas City, mustard, pepper and vinegar from the Carolinas, plus a wisp of smoke from Texas.
I received the above four Char Crust Dry Rub seasonings and so far, we’ve used the All American Barbecue and Amazin’ Cajun – both were really flavorful and a little spicy, which my family loves!
I used my All American Barbecue Char Crust seasoning on some boneless, skinless chicken breasts and my daughter and I basically licked out plates clean! The best part about Char Crust is how easy the seasoning packets are to use – you just throw the meat into a Ziplock bag with the seasoning and shake it up, or you can pat down your meat with the seasonings. I used both methods, one with the All American Barbecue, and one with the Amazin’ Cajun, and they both came out with the perfect amount of seasoning on them!
When I made the Char Crust All American Barbecue on my chicken, I just laid my chicken thighs out on the broiling pan, rubbed the seasonings onto them, then sprayed a light layer of cooking spray over them. It is suggested to do this to make the outside a little crispy.
Our chicken came out so tender and juicy – and packed with flavor! My husband rarely gives me compliments on my cooking and after I made the Amazin’ Cajun, he told me, “Man, I love the way you cook chicken!”
Char Crust Dry Rub Seasonings are available on the Char Crust website, or you can buy Char Crust through Amazon! They retail for $5.49 a box, which is actually enough to cook two meals with (at least, it was for my family of 3).
