How to Make Steak Coffee Rub

Posted on Sun, Jan 25, 2015

Nothing drives me more crazy than seeing those expensive little jars of rubs and spice mixes in the stores. I can't possibly imagine that someone would spend that kind of money on something you can make so easily at home.  I have all kinds of concoctions that I use on a regular basis. I make my own shake n bake, chili seasoning and my most recent addition- steak coffee rub.  All of these homemade spice combinations come together in no time and cost pennies. 

To make you own coffee steak rub, you will need 3 simple ingredients:

- kosher salt

- course ground pepper

- ground coffee (finely ground works best)

The amounts of each can vary based on your personal taste preferences however I generally go with a small amount of salt (about 1/8 of a cup), a little more pepper (about 1/4 of a cup) and a little more coffee (about 1/2 a cup).  But, I really like the taste of coffee and pepper, you will want to taste test to see what works best for you. Just toss all three ingredients in a bowl, whisk and viola, you have a unique steak rub! 

FYI, this makes a great homemade gift idea especially for the men in your life.  Fill a glass jar (such as these) add a gift tag and you have a perfect DIY present for him.  As a matter of fact, one certain man in my life may be receiving a jar for Valentines Day!  If you like this idea, please go ahead an print my gift tags, I make these for every holiday and certainly dont mind you doing the same!
