As the recipe stands I did not enjoy it. But with one simple tweak it came alive: sea salt. Without the salt the flavour is plain and hardly comes alive. But once I added salt to the mix everything was jigging and jiving and my tongue thanked me greatly! As it is being used on fatty cuts such as lamb it will not leach out too much liquid. If salt had been added I would have given this 4-5 stars. Cheers! Read More

Did not care for this spice rub at all. It left very little in the way of flavor. My grilled lamb chops with an acid based marinade have always turned out much better tasting. I wanted to try something new but the chops were not good with this spice rub. Read More

It's also great for pork loin roast! I make this up in bulk and keep it in a labeled airtight jar. I add 1 1/2 tsp salt and 3/4 tsp granulated garlic and omit the curry (nobody here likes curry) Then I use about 2-3 Tablespoons of the mixture rubbed onto the fat side of the pork roast. When I remember to do it I poke holes into the roast first with a fork to let the flavor penetrate. Mmmm good! Read More

This was pretty good I made up a lot so I would have more later. I used it this time on lamb chops that I grilled over wood coals. I also let the rub stay on the chops overnight before grilling. Very tasty. Read More

This was very good. I did add some salt and pepper as suggested by some other reviewers and I feel it did bring out the flavor. I used a mild Jamaican curry. I love Cumin and you just can't go wrong with anything it goes in.:) Read More

This rub was great on the roast I made last night. I added a small amount of salt and fresh ground pepper to the rub and it was delicious. I'll definitely be using this recipe again! Read More
