Coffee Rub Recipe 

April 01, 2020

Looking for an easy way to make your weeknight dinner feel a little more special? Try this coffee rub recipe to season steaks, pork chops, or ribs. 

 Ingredients:

2 tablespoons chili powder 

2 tablespoons ground coffee 

5 teaspoons dark brown sugar 

1 tablespoon smoked paprika 

1½ teaspoons dried oregano 

1½ teaspoons ground black pepper 

1½ teaspoons ground coriander 

1½ teaspoons mustard powder 

¾ teaspoon ground red pepper flakes 

1 teaspoon ground ginger 

1 tablespoon kosher salt, plus more 

1-2 pounds of boneless New York strip steaks, pork chops, or ribs (about 1 inch thick) 

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

 

Mix chili powder, ground coffee, brown sugar, paprika, oregano, pepper, coriander, mustard, pepper flakes, ginger, and 1 tablespoon of salt in a bowl to combine. 

  1. Season steak or pork with remaining salt, then coat evenly with the dry coffee rub. Marinate chilled and uncovered for three to six hours. 
  2. Remove the meat from the fridge and allow it to rest for 1 hour to come to room temperature to ensure it will cook quickly and more evenly. 
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook steak or pork about 2 minutes on each side to create a nice seared crust. If oven-safe, transfer the skillet to the oven or place the meat on a wire rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet to catch any drippings and to ensure even heat distribution. Bake for about 5 minutes for medium rare. Remove from oven and let the meat rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving to maintain flavorful juices. 

 

Serve your steak or pork with roasted, grilled, or sautéed vegetables, tangy coleslaw, or rich, buttery mashed potatoes. If you have any drippings left over in the skillet or pan, make a quick and easy gravy by making a roux with melted butter and flour, then add chicken or beef stock. Whisk until smooth and let it simmer to thicken. Adjust liquid or flour to your desired consistency and spoon it over mashed potatoes and meat.
