Latin Rub for Steak

Latin Rub for Steak
Makes enough for 4-12 ounce steaks

4 Steaks (10-12 ounces each; about 1″ thick)
1/2 c. Cumin Powder
1/2 c. Chili Powder
4 T. Ground Coriander
2 T. Cayenne Powder
4 T. Black Pepper
2 T. Cinnamon
2 T. Brown Sugar
1 T. Salt
1 T. Garlic Powder (not Garlic Salt)
1/4 c. Vegetable Oil
1 Lime, cut into quarters

Remove steaks from refrigerator to bring to room temperature.  Meanwhile, start your grill.  While the grill is heating up, mix well all the ingredients listed, except vegetable oil and lime, in a small bowl.  When the grill is ready, rub steaks on both sides with the vegetable oil, then dredge in the rub mix.  Place the prepared steaks on the grill; for medium rare doneness, grill about
4 minutes on each side.  Remove steaks to serving plate and garnish with lime wedge.
