This herbal meat rub can be used as successfully as liquid marinade and add wonderful flavors to meat.
Meat or lamb rub is any mixture of ground spices that is made for the purpose of being rubbed on raw meat before the meat is cooked. The meat rub forms a coat on the meat. The meat can be marinated in the rub for some time for the flavors to incorporate into the meat or it can be cooked immediately after it is coated in the rub. The spices are usually coarsely ground. It is rubbed onto the lamb before barbecuing. The lamb absorbs the essential oils from the spices and herbs, adding another flavor dimension to meat.
