Cinnamon Coriander BBQ Ribs
These ribs are tender and full of flavor thanks to a trio of Spice Tribe spices. I used a combination of Oasis Coriander Seeds, Island Nutmeg, and Padang Cassia Cinnamon to create the spice rub for these ribs. These spices were not new to me, but they definitely had subtle flavor differences because of the region each spice is from. I love that Spice Tribe works directly with farmers and artisans to obtain their spices and pays them a fair wage. They also pay homage to the place these spices come from by printing the city and country of origin on each bottle which tells a story about each spice in their collection. I have to say Spice Tribe has become one of my favorite spice brands for that reason.
