Making the Brisket Rub

  • Toast the coriander, cumin, fennel, and black peppercorns in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Move the seeds around the pan to prevent burning. Once the spices bloom and become fragrant, it’s time to halt the toasting process. 
  • Remove spices from heat and pour the toasted seeds onto a clean plate. Carefully spread them out and let them cool for 10 minutes.
  • Grind spices using a mortar and pestle or spice grinder to your preferred texture. You might need to work in batches to complete the job. We recommend a fine or a medium grind for this brisket rub. Either one works!
  • Place spices into a bowl and stir in remaining aromatic brisket rub ingredients.

  • Use this rub right away on a beef brisket, or store in an airtight container in the cupboard for up to 10-12 months after preparation.
  • Discard any leftover rub that has come into contact with raw meat.
  • This aromatic brisket rub is also an excellent seasoning choice for other cuts of beef like tri-tip, prime rib, or tomahawk steaks.
