Easy Herbs for Pork

Post by community member:


The other day I posted a recipe for Easy Herbs for Chicken. Here is another meat rub that we love, and that we use a lot.

This is my very favorite way to fix pork shoulder chops or even a larger pork roast. As I did with the Chicken Rub recipe, I’ve given you a single use version and a bulk version.

How to make Pork Rub: Printable

Single use:

2 teaspoons salt
1 Tablespoon mustard powder
2 teaspoons rosemary powder


1 1/2 cups salt
2 cups mustard powder
1 1/2 cups rosemary powder

Stir it up well and rub it on the meat before you cook it. Don’t worry too much about the proportions. It’ll taste great!


P.S. Don’t freak out about the mustard thing. It won’t taste like you poured French’s yellow all over it. Trust me! It’s not really spicy at all. Try it once before you pass judgement.

Tell us what other herbs you use on pork!
