Karl’s Beef Dry Rub

I am making carne asada for my mojo tacos today. Many recipes call for marinating the meat in the mojo sauce before grilling. Unless you have a really hot heat source, wet marinade tends to cause the meat to steam rather than char. To avoid this, I plan to give the meat a dry rub, grill it, and then mix the crusty sliced beef with the mojo sauce at the last minute.
