1
tablespoon packed brown sugar
1
teaspoon lemon pepper
1
teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/2
teaspoon garlic powder
1/2
teaspoon seasoning salt

  • 1 Mix all ingredients.
  • 2 Spread rub evenly on 1 pound boneless meat (fish, chicken or pork). Cover and refrigerate 15 minutes. Grill meat as desired.

Expert Tips

Each 4-ounce fish fillet, chicken breast half or pork chop will use about 2 teaspoons of the rub. Sprinkle evenly over meat, then rub gently with fingers. Although the meat can be grilled right after the rub is added, letting it stand for a short time to marinate will add flavor.

Prepare a double or triple recipe of this rub, and store tightly covered at room temperature until ready to use.
