« slow cooker smoked chuck roast | Main | eventful morning »

dry rub

Life has calmed down from Saturday morning.  My Beloved is healing.  He has a few sensitive bits of skin, eyes are still sensitive to bright lights and wind, and he tires easy but that is what is left.  He needs new glasses.  He has his sight and there are no blistered burns.  I am very thankful.  

I was very thankful that I had planned a slow cooker meal for Sunday that I actually started on Saturday.  I woke Saturday night every time my Beloved moved.  It meant there was very little energy on Sunday.  But we needed food.

I have been experimenting with a fake smoked pork recipe.  I actually followed the recipe the first time.  My Beloved thought I was sick.  The flavor was good but I thought the pork was dry.  My Beloved asked for beef the next time because his stomach seems to react to each pig that is butchered differently.  I have had the same experience so I was not surprised.  On Saturday, I marinated a chuck roast.  I started with a dry rub I made based on one of Bobby Flay's from the Food Network.  I will be using this again.

dry rub

1 tablespoon cumin

1 tablespoon paprika

1 tablespoon New Mexico chile powder (I used one from Rancho Gardo)

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon cayenne

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon white pepper

Mix all in a spice grinder.  Blend well.  Put in a jar to use on meat.  Rub into meat and let sit overnight to season.

He is doing much better. One small place that is tender and he is taking care of his eyes. They are sensitive but healing. Thank you so much for your prayers!
