South African Spice Rub
South African Spice Rub is a spicy - tangy mixture that is not only suitable for South African cuisine. However, it is this flavor-intensive kitchen, which loves spices and lots of flavors in their dishes. Arab traders brought many different spices to Africa ages ago, and you can see that in their use in your kitchen. Besides, many Asian and European immigrants live in South Africa who, with their customary flavors, also influenced South African cuisine.
African Rub - Aroma Profile
African Rub is a South African spice Rub from Orlandosidee. This successful and highly aromatic spice blend not only refines dishes from South African cuisine but also our local ones. It is a warm and powerful blend with the lively taste of Africa. This spice preparation is as versatile and colorful as Africa and its people.
African cuisine spices very spicy, but this mixture is not so tasty that we Europeans can eat it too. Please feel free if you would like to spice it up with chili. In our online shop, you will also find a large selection of chili powder, chili flakes, or whole dried chili peppers. Whatever your heart desires for that particular spicy kick, order it and mix it yourself.
(We have other African spices here.)
How do you use the South African Spice Rub?
You can use this Spice mix in different ways.
First, dry your meat with a paper towel and spread the spice rub over the chicken. Then use your hands to rub the spices over the meat.
You can marinate your grilled meat with the Rub, be it beef, chicken, lamb, or antelope. It gives your meat a unique & exotic aroma. To marinate your grilled meat with it, put it in a plastic bag the day before you like to use it with a little olive oil and 1-2 teaspoons of African Ruby. Let the meat marinate in the fridge overnight and take it out of the refrigerator an hour before grilling. You can also use this spice mixture to prepare stews, rice dishes, or couscous.
Spice rubs are very suitable for flavoring curd cheese, which you would like to use as a vegetable dip. For this, give 1 - 2 teaspoons of African Spice Rub from Orlandosidee® in 250 gr curd cheese. Stir and done, also goes well with jacket potatoes.
You can also use this delicious mixture to conjure up a herb - spice butter for your next barbecue. For this, please add some of this seasoning to soft butter to your taste. Mix everything, wrap it in baking paper into a roll and put it in the fridge until ready to serve.
With African Rub, you can also marinate salads, add some of the mixtures in vinegar and oil.
