I’m not an adventurous cook. If I deviate from a recipe, well let’s just say the end result is not pretty. My husband is a better cook. Grilling is his thing. Between the two of us we make a decent cook.
There is one ingredient that helps us…tremendously…premixed spices. Dry rubs. Seasoning salt. Spices. All of these help to enhance the flavor of the meat we are cooking AND are fairly idiot proof. The “idiot” cook would be more me than my husband, but you get the idea. I like to take the guess work out of figuring out how to flavor meat. When we season with spices and seasonings that are tried and true, the meal is a sure fire hit. Now finding a good seasoning blend is another matter
A few months ago I started working for a giveaway website with a twist. The twist was that ALL giveaways were organic and eco-friendly products. Sadly the site went dark, but before that happened I was able to connect with one of the giveaway sponsors for a review and giveaway on this blog.
The kind folks at SpiceCrafters were kind enough to send me two of their most popular products: Primo 27 Original Blend and Primo 27 Seasoning Salt. I was anxious to try both out. Weeknights are not good cooking nights for our family. Too many activities. An abundance of homework. No time for doing anything more than cooking from frozen or reheating leftovers. But Friday through Sunday we have a little time to breathe and…experiment.
So one Saturday night we tested the Primo 27 Original Blend on steaks. Our kids have never been finicky eaters, but they are not adventurous when it comes to food. We seasoned steaks with Primo 27 Original Blend. The Teen loved the taste. The Tween — our pickiest eater — ate some of it. The Kids devoured it! He’s 7, but has a bigger appetite than his “eat-like-a-bird-at-aged-7” sisters. Is this a boy thing? Must be!
So what’s the secret about Primo 27?
- Primo 27 Original Blend — First of all, there are No Fillers or Free Flow Agents. Primo 27 was carefully crafted and designed to be global in flavor featuring spices used in American, Latin American, Caribbean, Asian, European, African, and Mediterranean cuisine. 4 oz. $7.99
- Primo 27 Seasoning Salt — Use in conjunction with the original blend for a jolt of salty goodness, or as a standalone all purpose seasoning salt. 6 oz. $7.99
