Chinese-Style Five Spice Rub

Recipe by  

"This simple mixture of five spices commonly used in Chinese cooking works great as a rub or in a marinade. The ingredients may be a little more difficult to obtain, but the effort is well worth the result. This is probably one of the easiest recipes to assemble. I hope you enjoy."

I sprinkle this on the coffee grounds in my coffee maker before pushing the start button! Gives the coffee a unique flavor!

Wonderful! Thank you for posting the recipe. I used powdered clove instead of whole and used ground pepper. I use this spice in most of my Oriental cooking.

I love the flavor of 5 spice. No, I have not made this yet BUT thank you so much for posting a recipe for it.

The Szechuan pepper can be a little hard to find, so when you do, make a big batch of this and toss it on everything from grilled pork, chicken or shrimp to popcorn. Very good. I did this recipe as a part of the Western Region's Faceless Frenzy July 2012.
