Dry Rub Mix

This is what my husband uses to rub on lamb before roasting it in the oven or a roasting pit. You can also add in some olive oil to make a paste and slather it on. Lamb is a favorite here in Saudi Arabia. Holidays and celebrations always include lamb.

    Hello Susie,
    Thanks for all the posts. I enjoy them all.
    Have a little request regarding the lamb thing that your husband seem to specialise. I am highly interested in the recipe. I feel it would bea great dish for me and my family if I could do it myself. Kindly advise the recipe so i can try it myself and impress my misuss.

    • It’s funny you should ask – I have been trying to write down my husband’s recipes for years, but it is impossible. He doesn’t use measurements and just uses whatever he happens to have on hand. He just knows what spices and food items work well together. I do believe that he first rubs the lamb with some olive oil, then rubs on the spice mixture. Then just roast in the oven or a pit until it’s done. Sorry I can’t be more specific.

    Yes, most Saudis like lamb especailly when its served with “Kabssah”. but I prefer chicken and I love it BBQed, better yet (because I’m from Jeddah) I enjoy sea food. I am not sure if you ever been to the those fresh fish places on the road going to KAUST.

    The best tasty fish you’ll ever eat.
