Beef Seasoning & Rubs

Comments Off on Beef Seasoning & Rubs

Various cuts of beef can use different  beef seasonings. You have the basic “Salt & Pepper” camp that only uses these two ingredients. Still, there are other ‘camps’ for additional seasoning, whether you want some smokiness or more robust spice. And different cuts call for different rubs, but many are interchangeable.

When to season is also essential to understand. If you season meat too early before cooking, the salt will draw out the moisture, meaning a less juicy piece of meat. However, if you season just before cooking, the seasoning will help to impart flavor into the meat. On the other hand, if you sear the meat and then season it, the sealed meat will not release any juice.
