Pork Chop Seasoning - Add Superb
Flavours to Your Juicy Pork Chops!

This is an easy-to-make pork chop seasoning made with a mix of tasty whole spices and dried herbs for adding fabulous flavours, whether grilling, frying or oven cooking. It's also versatile, and can be used on any other part of the pig. (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)

What You'll Need: (makes about 7-8 tablespoons) 

3 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp dried rosemary
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp paprika powder
1 tbsp cumin seeds
4 tsp dried basil
2 tsp mustard powder
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp peppercorns
2 tsp salt (see note below)

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Grind the sugar, salt, peppercorns, cumin seeds and dried rosemary
  • Once ground add to a bowl
  • Add the mustard, paprika, chili, garlic and onion powders to the bowl and combine thoroughly
  • Finally, crumble in the dried basil and combine again

Store in a cool place out of direct sunlight in an airtight container. Use within 3 months before making a fresh lot.

Note: I recommend using a good quality salt: sea/rock/kosher/flakes etc as these are a bit less processed and will add better flavour to your blends. If however, you only have regular table salt available, just use that (as I sometimes do) and you'll still end up with a great tasting blend.

Ingredient Note: This pork chop rub uses whole peppercorns and cumin seeds which are then ground before combining. If you only have these in pre-ground form, you can still use them if you reduce the amount the recipe says by roughly half. So, for 2 teaspoons of peppercorns you use 1 teaspoon of ground pepper and stir in with the other powders when making.
