When it comes to dinner time, everyone looks to me. I am the one who does all the grilling, cooking and baking. Over the years I have learned having fresh spices makes a significant difference, especially when grilling. Urban Accents has a grilling gift set, filled with a variety of rubs and seasonings.
As I was going through the spices I noticed the labels. Each label tells you what will go best with it. I have never seen this before. When I first started grilling I would have loved to have had this information. I learned a lot through trial and error about what spice works best with which meat.
My favorite meat to grill is steak. Peyton and I just love getting a big juicy steak and sharing it for dinner. When I saw there was a Chicago Steak & Chop seasoning I knew this was the one I was going to try out. I generously sprinkled the coarse ground spices all over the steak before I started to grill it. Then I grilled it over medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side. I had the perfectly seasoned medium rare steak! Now, we just couldn’t have steak for dinner by itself so I took out some potatoes. Chopped them up into quarters, sprinkled with Sonoma Pepper and roasted them in the oven while the steak was cooking. Yum! Because it was salt-free, I did sprinkle a little pink Himalayan salt on too. Both spice blends were full of flavor. Our dinner was scrumptious.
Inside the kit, you will receive 4 spice blends and 4 spice rubs. The dinner combinations are endless! Some of spice blends are gluten free and salt-free.
If you are looking to expand your grilling spice collection, this set is a good start. Or if you are looking for a gift idea for an avid griller this would be nice too.
