A “butcher's rub” is a coarse mix of spices that’s both flavorful and attractive on meat. We love our Back of the Yards rub on steaks, burgers, ribs, chicken, duck, turkey and pork chops. This garlic-pepper rub is great for non-meat uses as well, like vegetables, eggs, and even to add zip to poppyseed dressing. We named this blend to honor the hard-working immigrants who were part of the meat industry, working in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, south of 39th Street between Halsted and Western. This seasoning is hand mixed from: Tellicherry black pepper, garlic, Kosher flake salt, sugar, red bell peppers, shallots, parsley.
