Coffee rub for steaks/roast?
One of my favorite restaurant has this grilled new york strip with a habanero cream sauce. One of the tricks I found out they use, is that the steak has coffee added to its spice rub. Recently got a very nice bag of coffee from Vietnam that has some Cherry wood mixed in, so thought I would try to recreate the steak at home, or it may make a good rub for something like a pork loin roast.
Wondering if you have any good recipes/tips on how much coffee to use, or how to minimize the bitterness of the grinds.
Thanks in advance!
This was fabulous during the holidays on a beef tenderloin and a pork tenderloin:
1/4 c finely ground coffee beans
1/4 c br sugar
2 Tbs chili powder
2 Tbs paprika
2 tsp gr sage
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp cayenne ( i left this off, not sure of my crowd)
combine the mix, rub on mix, let meat stand for 15 min. (make sure meat had been out of fridge for 1 hour before roasting before you put on rub.
