Back of the Yards Collection from the Spice House
Here in the Windy City, you can tour dishes from around the globe just by neighborhood-hopping. This collection of rubs and seasonings celebrates locals whose families hail from Southeast Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. Bring the world's tables together at yours by adding any of these blends to a new or favorite recipe.
This gift box features the following blends:
Argyle Street Stir Fry Blend
Ideal for a weeknight stir fry, this blend brings together the staples of Southeast Asian flavors: lemongrass, ginger, cilantro, garlic, and chili pepper. Flash fry in your wok before adding vegetables and proteins to release this blend full flavor. Or sprinkle some on a cold noodle salad.
Back of the Yards Garlic-Pepper Butcher's Rub
This mixture of coarser spices is known as a "butcher's rub," designed to flavor almost any meat. In addition to its wonderful garlic-pepper flavor, we have jazzed this blend up with some colorful green herbs and red bell peppers. A great grilling spice for any meat: chops, ribs, steaks, poultry. Besides being perfect for steaks, try it on broiled lake perch or even added to salad dressings.
Ukrainian Village Seasoning
Our favorite all-purpose vegetable seasoning. A blend of the old-country standbys of black pepper, onion, salt, and garlic mixed with a touch of the new-country red and green bell peppers. Delicious on eggs and chicken, or in buttermilk/sour cream mixtures for ranch-style salad dressings. Great seasoning for potato salad. Roll new potatoes in oil and Ukrainian seasoning, and the potato skin becomes really delicious!
Pilsen Latino Seasoning
Named for an area of Chicago with a strong Hispanic/Latino population, this blend has some zest! A good amount of chile pepper dominates this mixture, making it terrific for salsa, chicken, beans, burritos, rice and beef.
