Papaya Rub


This wet rub not only has the ability to add flavor, but because of the papaya's natural tenderizing power, it helps to keep meats tender.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Makes about 1 cup


  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon salt (kosher)
  • 1 papaya, peeled and seeded


Slice papaya into thin slices. Combine sugar, soy sauce, black pepper and salt. Mix until sugar and salt dissolve. Rub mixture over the surface of the meat you want to season. Place half the papaya slices on the bottom of a glass baking dish. Place meat on top of slices. Cover meat with the other half of the slices. Cover and refrigerator for 1 hour.
