Spicing things up in the Kitchen

We’ve all been there, you’re standing in your kitchen, gazing dejectedly at the piece of meat you have for this evening’s meal. You’re all out of ideas to add flavour …Image

We’ve come up with a simple recipe for a spice rub that is sure to ‘wake up’ beef, chicken or the ever-dependable pork chop. Rub this into your piece of meat before cooking to add that extra ‘oomph’ .


  • 2 tbsp O’ Neill’s Irish Atlantic Sea Salt (Try either our Plain Sea Salt or the Chilli & Paprika flavoured Sea Salt for an extra kick) Chilli & Paprika
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Sweet Paprika
  • 1/2 tbsp Cayenne Pepper

Note: The above makes enough spice rub for one whole chicken.IMG_0164


1. Mix all ingredients together and rub into your meat. Depending on the type of meat, score the fat of the meat first then apply the rub.

2. Cook as normal.

3. Enjoy the praise you are sure to receive…
