I am a really good cook, but my secret is simply using the best quality ingredients and patiently follow directions. In my quest for finding the best dry-rub seasonings, I noticed that high end grocery stores were carrying Char Crust Dry-Rub Seasonings. I contacted Char Crust to see if they would like me to do a review and they were very nice and let me select two out of their nine flavors. I selected the Original Hickory Grilled and the Ginger Teriyaki. Since the majority of reviews that I've found focus on chicken and steaks, I decided to try out chicken, but also branch out and test them on homemade beef jerky using my food dehydrator. The results were fabulous!
The Char Crust comes in cute boxes!
The beef jerky was easy to make. We cut up the meat, put it in a gallon Ziploc bag, pour Char Crust into the bag, zip it up, and shake it to coat the meat. We then use our food dehydrator as we usually do to make beef jerky. Both varieties of Char Crust seasoning that we used worked out well for the jerky! My only complaint is that it took approximately two days to make the beef jerky and everyone ate it within a half hour! LOL.
I also used it on chicken breast for sandwiches. Both seasonings were really good. The Char Crusted meat went really well with the sandwiches that I made using nan, yogurt-cucumber sauce, tomato, cucumber, and lettuce.
Aside from my review of the products, I also wanted to share something that made me smile. He won his wife over with chicken cooked with Char Crust. What a guy!
I am appreciative of the free products that we received for this review. I was not monetarily compensated for this review and all opinions are honest and my own.
