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.
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.
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.
