Pork Rub ala TJ

By Manolito Bastasa

Pork can sometimes be such a bore to eat - it's always the same type of sauce or rub with no real zing or zest. Here's a great recipe using two of the Old-Soldier Seasonings along with a few easy to find ingredients. This is one of those you can make with as much heat as you like as the fruit in it gives that sweet end of the deal.


This is one we used with the pork loins, though you can use it on ribs as well. Here's what you need:

  • Old Soldier Chili Seasoning - approx 2T
  • Old-Soldier Pork Seasoning - approx 3T
  • Honey
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Tabasco
  • Serrano or Jalapeno Peppers
  • Crushed Pineapple or Minced Apples (or applesauce)

Place these in a food processor and puree them together. Again, remember you can play with the amounts of peppers and fruit. I went with 2 peppers and a small container of crushed pineapple, a few shakes of tabasco and worcestershire sauce and 1/2c of honey. You could add a bit of bbq sauce in this if you want - I didn't add any this time.

You can either put the meat in the sauce or brush it on the meat as it grills - all depending on whether you want to use the remaining sauce after the meat is cooked.
