Dry Rub for Pork Ribs

I just tried this dry rub, and it’s yummy! Put the rub on the ribs and refrigerate overnight.  Cook the ribs in the oven or on the grill, using either a barbecue sauce or a mop for the last hour or so of cooking.

  • 2 tbsp fennel seeds
  • 2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds 
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp ground cayenne
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp dry mustard
  1. Toast the fennel, coriander and cumin seeds in a sauté pan until fragrant and oils have been released. Grind in a spice grinder until in powder form. Feel free to use ground spices if you prefer, but use a 1/2 tsp LESS of each.

  2. Remove the thin, papery membrane from the back of each rack by inserting a knife under it. The best place to start is on one of the middle bones. Using a paper towel, or pliers to secure a grip and peel off the membrane.
  3. In a small bowl whisk together the toasted/ground spices and all the remaining dry rub ingredients and rub all over ribs. Wrap the ribs back up in the butcher’s paper (it has a great wax interior side to keep juices from dripping out), and seal with aluminum foil. Place in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
