Amazing Taste Perfectly Seasoned Pork Chops
This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Tracey K for winning the nine packets of Amazing Taste seasoning plus the recipe cards! A big thanks to all who entered the giveaway!

A couple weeks ago, I was approached by Amazing Taste and they asked me if I was interested in trying their seasonings. I'm always up for experimenting with new foods, spices, techniques, etc. so, needless to say, I was very excited...as was my husband, the master griller.

When I first received the box of seasonings, I swear my husband's inner master griller jumped for joy. We quickly made a game plan and headed to the grocery store to pick up items for a grilled pork chop dinner complete with a side salad, cranberry and pine nut green beans and twice-baked potatoes.

After perusing through the box of seasoning packets, I came across one labeled Malibu. This zesty blend of garlic, onion, black pepper and paprika smelled amazing as soon as I opened the package. I knew that it was going to be the perfect complement to the pork chops.

Instead of using it as a marinade, I decided to pat it onto the pork chops as a rub. Boy oh boy...I am glad I did it this way because after the first bite, my husband turned to me and said, "This pork chop tastes amazing. I might go so far as to say that this is the best pork chop I have ever had." Now that's saying something.

After I quickly discovered that we were huge fans of Amazing Taste's products, I decided to see what the beef seasoning packet was like this past weekend when we grilled hamburgers. I, once again, used the seasoning as a rub and after they came off the grill they looked and smelled delicious. My father-in-law was in town this weekend and, after taking a few bites, he said, "This is probably the best burger I have ever had." We only grilled four hamburgers so my father-in-law and husband ended up fighting over the last one. Do you see a pattern here?

I look forward to working my way through the remainder of the seasoning packets. I know that they will enhance the flavors of my dishes and give them a unique flavor. The other great part about the seasonings is that they help to lock in the juices, making meats nice and tender.

The packets are inexpensive (only $0.99 each) and the seasonings are all natural, low in sodium and have no MSG. As stated on the front of the package, just sprinkle it on the meat or use as a marinade. It's as simple as that. The end results are juicy and tender meats that are full of delicious flavor.

Thanks to the kind people at Amazing Taste, they are offering you the opportunity to enjoy these packets as we have with each and every packet we use. If you love meat and are looking for a way to change up the flavor, be sure to enter this giveaway for a chance to win nine packets of seasoning plus recipe cards from Amazing Taste!

  20. These would be used well in our house. My husband grills year-round and takes bizarre pleasure in going out in flip flops and grilling when there's snow on the ground. Needless to say, herbs, spices and marinades are used heavily here.
