Pork Chops with Homemade Herb Rub

Pork chops (and other meats) really perk up when they're seasoned with this homemade herb blend. Watching your sodium? Leave out the salt...and you'll still get plenty of flavor, Jean Morgan of Roscoe, Illinois shared the recipe.

  • 1/3 cup dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 cup dried marjoram
  • 1/4 cup dried thyme

    Easy and tasty dish. The rub holds well in the fridge and the amount is large enough for a church supper or other affair. However, I just kind of guessed in reducing the amt for my family of 6 - but it still came out great! Make and take this rub on a camping trip or cookout - that it's dry enables it to travel easily.
