The Best Dry Rub for Pork

This pork dry rub is the perfect amount of savory and sweet, doesn’t require you to run to the store and buy a bunch of spices you’ll never use again, and 100% is our favorite dry rub for all cuts of PORK.

Plus, it’s only 7 ingredients — and bonus, you probably have these all on-hand at home already.

Ingredients

Yay for pork dry rub ingredients you can pronounce! And yay for ingredients you likely have on hand already! Nobody likes having to spend $30+ on spices that you’ll use infrequently to create a dry rub recipe at home, especially if it doesn’t end up tasting as flavorful as you’d like. This dry rub is both flavor-packed and includes SEVEN simple, easy to find ingredients, including:

  • Brown sugar
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Coarse salt
  • Cinnamon
  • Dried thyme
  • Pepper
spices on plate

Now, you’ll see in the recipe card the exact amounts of each of these spices and seasonings, but feel free to tweak the amounts if you like it a little more peppery (amp up the pepper) or a little sweeter (amp up the brown sugar and cinnamon by a 1/4 teaspoon each).

And feel free to sub coconut sugar for the brown sugar. If you like things REALLY hotty hot hot, add a pinch of cayenne or red pepper flakes. Make this rub your own!

*Per 1 lb. Pork: use around 2 tablespoons of rub.*
