Texas Roadhouse Rib Seasoning

While the Texas Roadhouse rib seasoning is available for purchase in the restaurant chain's physical locations and online on their website, it can be inconvenient to make a trip before preparing a special rib dinner for family or friends. Fortunately, making the Texas Roadhouse rib seasoning recipe at home is simple and can be prepared at a cost lower than buying the seasoning blend from the restaurant.

An added benefit of preparing your the rib rub at home is being able to customize the blend based on personal taste preferences and diet restrictions. The basic rib seasoning mix uses standard spices found in most home kitchens. The base rub is used to make tender and flavor-packed Texas Roadhouse killer ribs and can be used as a seasoning base for almost any slow-cooked meat dish. This rib seasoning can be made in batches and stored in a standard seasoning jar for up to 6 months without any decrease in flavor. Moisture can cause a problem for this rub, so it best to place the rib seasoning far from moisture sources. For those living in a high-humidity climate, storing the rub in the refrigerator will extend the seasoning mix's useful life.

For best results, use the rib seasoning on both sides of the ribs liberally. Allow the ribs to sit for at least five minutes after applying the rub to allow it to be absorbed into the meat. Use this rub in conjunction with a rib recipe to recreate the famous Texas Roadhouse flavor. While the rub was designed for pork ribs, the seasoning blend is suitable for any heartier meats such as beef or wild game.
