I love a simple spice rubbed meat because it's so fuss free. Really, you have minimal prep time and those 2 minutes of 'work' yield a devilishly delicious seasoned dinner. This Southwestern cowboy style rub is a slightly sweet, slightly hot, punch packed spice blend that I find utterly addictive. It's just another take on the pervasive cocoa and chili rubbed pork that's been doing the rounds for the last year or two, and if you haven't tried some variation of this rub…well, you should. The rich burnt sweetness from the brown sugar tangoes right up to smoky paprika, cumin and coriander. They dance well into the night through a hazy, heady cloud of cocoa and cinnamon. If that's not a recipe for romance, I just don't know what is.
