The weather in the northeast hasn’t been what I would call consistent, but baby, grilling season is upon us. And what a GREAT season it is.

Lauren DeMaio here, your Magic Bullet Blender Kitchen Magician and as a product of the DeMaio family, I’m a grilling aficionado, of sorts.

Below is a quick recipe for a rub that I use for everything from steaks on the grill to chicken in the oven – versatile, forgiving, yours, and easy with the Magic Bullet blender. It’s pretty cool actually, the blender works to break down some of our ingredients and release some strong flavors. I dig it.

Try it?

OPTIONS

– PULL YOUR PORK THE RIGHT WAY – This recipe is what I typically use for my pulled pork. Buy a pork butt, rub half on it and refrigerate overnight, take it out in the morning, rub with the remaining amount and cook at a low temp in the oven, covered tightly until able to be easily forked apart. This recipe is cool because it gives the pork a crust, some dimension in flavor, but again – can still easily be pulled apart. Top with BBQ sauce afterward. I can tell you that after living with two boys and entertaining them and their friends on many occasions –this was a CROWD PLEASER.

P.S. I then make my homemade BBQ sauce with the bullet. I will give you that recipe soon. It’s kinda RIDICULOUS.

Also, serve with some mini rolls and homemade coleslaw.

–          EXPERIMENTATION – Alright, ¼ cup of paprika is a lot, I know, but it works well for the pulled pork above.

The nice thing about this recipe is it’s very forgiving and versatile.

RULE: Keep your salt and sugar amounts set in place as above, then adjust to your taste buds.

Scale back on the spice if it sounds like a lot for you to handle.

–          IT’S A LOT, I KNOW – If you aren’t using it for a pulled pork recipe, that is fine. Make it now, jar it tight and keep it in the cupboard. Try it with:

o         Any type of pork roast

o         Beef roast

o         Steaks

o         Baked, whole chicken

Alrighty beauties, I’m out. Back to work.

Do yourself a favor, fire up those grills and knock someone’s SOCKS off. Whether it’s someone you love, someone you like, or someone you have to bite your tongue around and be courteous to by default, be like Nike, and just do it.

Be in touch soon, got a serious summery salad enhancement for you to enjoy.

In the meantime, happiest blending – from my big, nomadic heart – to all of yours!

 

Much love —
