Five Ways: Sweet Pecan Rub

This customer favorite is our go-to for ribs. Sweet Pecan Rub's combo of sweet, smoky and spicy make it a perfect compliment to baby backs. But what else? Read on...

Meat Loaf--Sweet Pecan Rub gives this weeknight staple new life. Add 1 Tablespoon Sweet Pecan for each pound of ground beef in your meat loaf recipe. Be sure to sprinkle a little on top. The sugar in the Sweet Pecan will glaze the meatloaf as it bakes.

Baked Beans--Try this quick version of baked beans. Rinse a can of plain, low sodium pinto beans. Heat over medium heat with a Tablespoon of Sweet Pecan Rub, two Tablespoons ketchup and a few drops of Worcestershire. Adjust the seasonings to taste.

Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken--Place boneless, skinless breasts or thighs (or a combo) in a slow cooker. Use 1 Tablespoon Sweet Pecan Rub for each pound of chicken. Add 1/4 cup chicken stock for each pound of chicken. Slow cook for 6-8 hours. Pull apart with forks and serve on buns or in tortillas for wraps.

Potato Salad, Egg Salad or Deviled Eggs--a little sprinkling of Sweet Pecan Rub will add lovely color and a different zing to your everyday potato salad. Similar to the typical dusting of paprika but with a sweet, smoky twist! 

Pork Tenderloin Medallions--Slice pork tenderloins into one inch thick medallions and sprinkle with Sweet Pecan Rub. Sear on one side over medium heat, then turn and lower the heat. Cook until no longer pink--about 3-5 minutes--and an internal temperature 145 degrees.
