Simple to put together, everything on hand, and the taste spectacular. I especially love the use of sea salt here, as it gives a perfect little crunch, the sugar mixed with the cumin and coriander is the way to go. I used this on steaks, and put the rub on in the morning, so by this afternoon, all the wonderful tastes of this rub had soaked well within the walls of the meat. Terrific, Studentchef! Didn't change a thing! Made for *SSC-Pet Parade* July 2008.
