This turned out delicious! I didn't have cumin seeds so I used ground cumin instead. I cut down on the amount of garlic powder because I don't really like the taste of garlic powder and I used ground red chile powder instead of red pepper because it's available where I live. I will definitely use this rub again, no question.
Nobody in my household enjoyed this Rub on their steak. Actually, they told me that I ruined a good steak.
I tried this rub on my Christmas turkey last year and it was the best turkey the family said they ever had. I used it again this year for Thanksgiving and my husband asked if I could make it regularily instead of just at special occasions. Just rub it under the skin (use the whole amount) and cook as you normaly would.
We made this a long time ago with some un-flattering cut of steak and didn't care for it. But recently we made it with flat iron steak. Awesome.
VERY good. The spices blended perfectly together and it was so easy to make.
I would use a little less cumin.
Excellent rub when used on spareribs. Our family multiplies the recipe in order to generously cover the spareribs before they hit the grill. Nice alternative to bbq sauce.
This was excellent! I used 1 tsp. ground cumin instead of the seeds (because I didn't have them). Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. I broiled the steaks and they smelled great cooking! My boyfriend, who can be picky, was amazed with the taste! This is definitely a keeper! Thank you!
