What's in the dry rub?
What does this dry rub taste like?
This dry rub is full of savory umami flavor and just a little bit spicy from the Hungarian paprika and the chipotle powder. It's perfect for braising a chuck roast (see full recipe below).
How to use the rub:
Step 1. Sprinkle the rub on a large plate, then press the raw chuck roast into it. Flip the roast over and press in the second side until all the rub is on the meat.
Step 2. Transfer the roast into a resealable plastic bag and refrigerate for 30 min. Heat oil in a Dutch oven, then sear the meat in it. Add chicken broth to the pot, put on the lid, transfer to a pre-heated oven and cook for about 3 hours at 300 degrees F.
Why use chuck roast rather than other cuts of beef?
Chuck roast (which comes from the shoulder area of the animal) is well-marbled and yields a much more tender and flavorful pot roast than other cuts of beef. (That's also the reason why chuck works great for making chili.)
How to store it:
If not using immediately, store the dry rub in a closed jar in the kitchen cabinet for up to 3 months.
