1 tablespoon minced dry garlic
1 tablespoon kosher salt
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons paprika
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Place the garlic and salt in a mortar and grind with a pestle, or use a coffee grinder used for spices. (If you want to hand grind the pepper you could also place whole pepper corns in the mortar, otherwise grind with a pepper grinder.)
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine.
Sprinkle on beef, pork or chicken before cooking.
Store in a sealed zip lock bag or air-tight container for up to two years.
