I have been making this rub for a while and really regret I have not given its due, sooner. Whole family loves flank steak, and this makes a great change from the standard marinade. From my experience, good spices always make a difference, but kosher salt and fresh ground pepper really count here.
Made as posted without any changes, and we were all satisfied by these steaks. The sweet spicy rub went real well on these and added a great taste to it. Made for Bargain Basement.
