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!
