Delicious Dry Rub

Mix together these simple ingredients to rub on beef roasts or steaks before grilling...or mix with stewing beef and shrimp to make delicious shish kabob!

    1/2 cup paprika

    3 tablespoons cayenne pepper

    5 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper

    6 tablespoons garlic powder

    3 tablespoons onion powder

    3 tablespoons salt

    2 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano

    2 1/2 tablespoons dried thyme

For ideal results, grind all ingredients together using a mortar and pestle or a small coffee grinder (preferrably one that hasn't been used to grind coffee!)  You can use the mixture right away.  Store the remainder in a glass jar since the peppers can eat through plastic over time.
