Just in time for the Kentucky Derby: my sweet-tea mint rub for mint julep ribs. Full recipe in Best Ribs Ever. Here's that rub:
1 tablespoon iced tea mix (made with sugar, not artificial sweetener)
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon dried mint (peppermint or spearmint)
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon coarse salt (kosher or sea)
1 tablespoon black pepper
Mix well and rub on baby backs, spare ribs, or pork shoulder.
