Review: No Rubbish 'The Incredible'
The rub is packed in a nice jar with a spreading and pouring opening, making it suitable for different types of preparations.
The rub itself is a very fine grain, so the spreading opening is sufficient to season your dish.
When I opened the jar, the smell of ginger in combination with the bay leaf immediately came to me, the water was immediately in my mouth.
Time for a product test, see if it is really INCREDIBLE!
Like every rub, I try it out on a vegetable first. Because this rub is characterized by a fusion of South Carolina and Asia, I opted for sweet potato fries.
Now I don't know if it is because of the vegetables or the amount of rub I used but I didn't really taste it in the fries. They did, however, have the spicier touch that ginger gives to a dish, which combined super with the hamburger.
I suspect that I will have to do the test again with a piece of meat.
Yesterday I finally put it to the test with a piece of pork chop and I must say, the taste was much better here!
I sprinkled the cutlet generously with the rub and let it steep for 15 minutes, then grilled briefly at a high temperature and then let it rest for a while. The flavor of the spices in combination with the pork was superb! I now understand why many men are a fan of this.
Conclusion: This rub is more suitable for use on meat and fish than on vegetables.
The scent is fantastic
You can certainly find the spicier touch of the ginger in your dish
The jar is aesthetically pleasing and neutral
The bay leaf is not really coming through
If you use more of the rub, I think it will come through, but then the ginger will dominate your dish.
If you use the spreader opening, it can become clogged when using a larger amount.
What can be done better
I would play a bit more in the ginger / bay leaf ratio, currently ginger is a bit overpowering for me. I may have to change my opinion when I have tested this product on a piece of meat.
EDIT: I finally tested the rub with a piece of pork, this is where the spices come through really nicely.
The sprinkle opening is a nice addition for seasoning smaller pieces of meat, when you are going to season larger pieces this opening can sometimes get stuck, I think that's a shame.
