Recipe Testers' Reviews
This coffee rub is the best coffee rub EVER!!! It takes about 3 minutes to mix. Then rub it on your steak and grill. The flavor is perfect. Not too hot but plenty of deliciousness to make your tastebuds sing. My husband usually likes to use a steak sauce or some Worcestershire, but not this time. Definitely a recipe you want to save.
This coffee rub is AMAZING! During the last 2 weeks, I have made it twice and used it on pork chops, country ribs, chops (again), and now a whole bone-in pork butt that was smoked, low and slow, for nearly 10 hours. This rub is the stuff of dreams!
