Moroccan Rub

Moroccan Rub

2 TBSP paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground fenugreek
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp cayenne

For 1 1/2 pounds steak. Mix spice ingredients, except olive oil, in bowl. Using 3 TBSP of mixture, coat steak(s) well. Whisk olive oil with the rest of the rub and set aside. Cover steak(s) and refrigerate for one day. Heat the grill to medium-high and brush steaks with oil rub. Cook (five minutes per side for medium rare) and continue to baste with oil. Let rest 10 minutes under foil and serve.

Notes: This spice rub is from Marinades: the Secret of Great Grilling by Melanie Barnard. I used the same method here as in Spicy Steak Rub. A mild and complex taste, but it was agreed that the earlier recipe was the better of the two. Still, this was nice and easy cooking on a hot summer day. I might try the same mix with lamb burgers at some date in the future.

Yeah, I think it might well go better with lamb, and the blend of flavors would work well for a lamb burger (or something similar). This version was still good though.
