Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

I had a small brisket that I was going to throw in the crock pot but it needed a little oomph. This rub turned out really good. You can just as easily cook this in the oven or on the grill but I'm all about easy these days.

Spicy Rub

1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 bay leaf, crushed
2 pounds beef brisket
1 cup beef stock

Combine all spices in a small bowl. Rub all over roast.

Place roast in the crock pot and pour in the beef stock.

Set to low and cook for 8 - 10 hours (or on high for 5- 6) until tender.

The line-up. I used a brisket but 
you could put this on chicken or pork!

Put all the spices in a small 
bowl and give them a whisk.

Rub the rub on both sides of the 
roast then put it in the crock pot.

Pour the beef broth in the 
crock pot but not over the rub.

Let it cook until the 
meat is tender and yummy!
