Coffee Rubbed Steak (Paleo + Gluten Free)

Print

Nothing beats a good steak. It really is one of my favorite things to eat. I usually opt for minimal seasoning on steak, just some salt and pepper and if I’m feeling really extravagant, some butter. Usually, with a good cut of meat, that’s all you need. With that said, sometimes you feel like kicking it up a notch. Why not try some coffee rubbed steak?

Coffee and steak always sounded like a good combination to me (who doesn’t love both?) but I never tried making a coffee rub before. I love mixing up new seasoning combinations and experimenting with spices, so this one was fun to come up with. I wasn’t sure how strong the coffee flavor would come through and was a little afraid that my first try would come off the grill tasting too much like gritty coffee grounds. Luckily, it didn’t.

This coffee rubbed steak is very simple to make and only has 8 ingredients. It has just a subtle taste of coffee that isn’t overpowering at all. The coffee flavor blends perfectly with the bold, smoky chipotle and other seasonings. It’s got a touch of sweet, a touch of spice, and the perfect dose of coffee flavor.

We used skirt steak, but this rub would work on any cut of steak you are looking to take to the next level. Just prepare the spice rub, let it sit on your steak for 30 minutes to set in, and throw it on the grill. It’s really that easy to prepare a delicious steak with new depths of flavor.

Further Food Commentary:

Looking for a unique bbq recipe? You found it! This is a creative rub for steak that will wow your guests. The coffee grounds add a nice does of anti-oxidant polyphenols and B vitamins. Additionally, the spice from the mustard seeds can activate processes in your body that keep your system in good shape to fight infection and lose weight.
