Char Crust Giveaway!

 I usually don't get a product and write about it the same day. I couldn't help myself this time. I had a wonderful dinner, thanks to Char Crust and I couldn't wait to tell you about it! I've never heard of Char Crust before today, but I have heard of Al Farber's legendary steakhouse in Chicago. His son is the mastermind behind these packaged products, which enable beginners in the kitchen to have the ability to create extraordinary restaurant worthy meals they only dreamed about. I was asked to try four different rubs and tonight, I had Roasted Garlic Peppercorn rubbed pork. Oh my gosh delicious. My kids went nuts and talked through the meal about how delicious it was. I made rice with dinner and I sprinkled some rub in, just to give it a little something extra! you can also use it on vegetables, which would really help at our house! Sam isn't a huge vegetable fan, but after seeing how much he loved the pork, this may be my answer. Sam had seconds tonight and Logan, well, I'm not sure if he had three or four servings of pork. I had to make him stop. I rubbed the mixture onto my pork and heated some olive oil in a skillet. After browning on all sides, I put it in the oven to roast. It was juicy! I can't wait to try it with steaks on the grill! I must also mention the packaging. Brilliant! If you don't use a lot of seasonings, or if you don't want to read the fine print to see the recommended meat to use it on, just look on the right hand side on the front of the package. Pictured, you'll find what each rub compliments! It's so easy!

UPDATE!!! I've used these rubs every night since they arrived. I've tried every rub that was sent. They are my favorites (I couldn't pick just one!) and I plan on buying more!!!
Whether preparing a family dinner or a party feast, professional chefs and home cooks alike are always looking for unique and simple ways to spice up their dishes. Char Crust ® dry-rub seasonings consist of premium herb blends, spices and other natural ingredients that can be simply rubbed onto the surface of uncooked meat or fish, or sprinkled over raw vegetables then broiled, baked, grilled, pan-seared, roasted, or sautéed. I received:
• Roasted Garlic Peppercorn features the robust flavor of roasted garlic and onions with the zing of peppercorns and a hint of Worcestershire and lavender. Its versatility has made it a best seller. It complements steaks, lamb, seafood, pork, poultry, and potatoes.
• Ginger Teriyaki is a balance of sweet teriyaki, fragrant ginger, plus a tingly touch of wasabi that lends a new dimension and creates a modern teriyaki interpretation. It complements chicken, fish, and steak.
• Amazin’ Cajun is a spicy-sweet blend of piquant cayenne pepper, onion, garlic, oregano and a mélange of other Mardi Gras flavors. It brings the sublime heat of New Orleans to catfish, chicken, shrimp, and even “dirty” rice.
• All American Barbecue takes the best flavors of American barbecue and blends them into a tangy-sweet, slightly spicy rub. It has rich molasses from Memphis, tangy tomato from Kansas City, mustard, pepper and vinegar from the Carolinas, plus a wisp of smoke from Texas.
