Thank you Tim
Thank you Tim

Tim’s special coffee and smoked paprika rub heightens the flavor of bbq meats. It is a winner and we enjoyed tasting various rubs sprinkled on slices of mozzarella and fresh vegetables.

For the rub you will need:

1\4 cup finely ground dark roast coffee
1\4 cup dark chili powder
2 tablespoons smoked paprika
2 tablespoons salt
1\4 cup dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cumin

To make the spice mix, measure out all the ingredients into a medium sized mixing bowl. Break down any clumps of paprika or brown sugar with gloved or clean dry hands and thoroughly incorporate all the ingredients into an even, well mixed blend.

Completely rub your steaks (enough for 4 large steaks) with the spice mix and leave some to season the plate before serving. Grill the seasoned steaks over an open flame until rare to medium rare, then remove from grill and allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.

  1. The rub looks great – does the flavour of coffee come through very strongly?

    1. not at all you cannot even taste it but the end result is special. Tim also used it to make pumpkin steaks for vegetarians πŸ™‚

      1. That sounds good πŸ™‚

  2. I love a coffee rubbed steak. It has such a wonderful depth of flavor. The coffee is there lurking in the background every so gently and combines so well with the paprika and chile. Very nice, indeed.

    1. it was a new ingredient for me Richard used this way and I love it. so Texas eh!
