8 Spice Rubs You’ll Use on Everything

Our culinary team swears by these spice rubs for adding a quick punch of flavor to savory dishes. With less than five minutes of prep and simple ingredients, we know you’ll love these spice rubs, too.

  • Mexican Spice Rub: This spice rub adds a punch of flavor to fajitas, tacos, vegetables, or canned tomatoes for a quick enchilada sauce. Chef Annie suggests using one and one half tablespoons of this rub to any of the Brava fajita recipes before cooking. Finish with fresh lime juice and cilantro for a restaurant-worthy dish in minutes.
  • Brava Pork Rub: Inspired by Tuscany’s famous Porchetta, this all-purpose rub is perfect for pork but also great on chicken and lamb. Featuring the classic combination of fennel, rosemary and black pepper, this rub adds great flavor to pork chops, pork tenderloin and pork loin roasts.
  • Brava Chicken Rub: This Brava Chicken Rub recipe only requires four simple ingredients: salt, garlic, black pepper, and paprika. Feel free to use smoked paprika to add even more depth of flavor. We love to sprinkle this on any cut of chicken or vegetables before roasting. You can even whisk it into olive oil for a quick marinade.
  • Brava Sweet and Spicy BBQ Rub: JD Conley, Brava’s VP of Software Engineering, is our resident BBQ expert. He’s been tweaking this recipe for about 15 years. It’s designed for baby back pork ribs, but it works well on chicken and beef, too! Here, you’ll want to select the recipe programs that says “with dry rub” or “with marinade”, as these programs are optimized for sugary rubs.
  • Brava Taco Seasoning: This recipe adds major flavor to ground beef, chicken, or vegetables for taco night at home. Chef Annie recommends using four tablespoons of this Brava Taco Seasoning Recipe with about one pound of protein.
  • Brava Salmon Rub: The search for the best salmon rub is over! Brava Chef Erin spent days fine-tuning this recipe to be bold without overwhelming the delicate flavor of the fish. Although this rub was designed for salmon, it works well with most seafood, poultry, and vegetables.
  • Brava Steak Rub: We love this Brava Steak Rub recipe for its simplicity. If you can get your hands on whole peppercorns and coarsely grind them for this recipe, we recommend it. They add a crunchy texture and punchy hit. This versatile rub is intended for steak, though it can be used on pork, poultry, and seafood
  • Unsweetened Brava BBQ Rub: This rub is ideal if you want to make something taste like BBQ, but without all the sugar. JD uses this rub when he adheres to Whole 30® or Paleo diets. This is great for keto diets, too! Make sure to omit the salt if you are brining the protein first.
