Why You Will Love This Recipe
- Coffee: coffee + steak just go together! There is something about that bitter coffee flavor that pairs so well with a grilled steak!
- Chili Powder: then add in the combo of chili powder + coffee … and it is just magic!
- Lots or a little: I have tried this recipe using a little rub and a lot of rub … it’s awesome both ways! So if you just want a little extra flavor, go light with the rub. If you want to really taste that coffee + chili flavor then add a little extra and really get it into every nook and cranny.
What cut of beef can I use this on
The possibilities are endless – we love: New York Strip, Filet Mignon, Top Sirloin (sirloin steaks), Ribeye, etc.
Should You Dry Rub Steak
Yes! As I said, salt and pepper are great as a standalone seasoning for steak, but if you want to take to the next level this is the way to go (or a great steak marinade). Using a dry rub with kosher salt is recommended as it really brings out and accentuates the natural flavor of the steak.
How Long do You Leave Dry Rub on Steak
You can leave rub on a steak for as little as 30-40 minutes or as long as overnight. Leaving it on overnight will really allow those flavors to soak into the steak. If you are leaving it on overnight simply place the steak in a airtight container and leave in the fridge overnight.
