Yes, the rub definitely was the major problem besides the curing gone wrong. It was inspired by and looked interesting in the pre-cooking phase, although in the end the coriander was not available as seeds but only as powder, and I could not get the mustard seeds powdered using a mortar. Any better fitting pastrami rub recipe at hand?
