Coffee-Chili Dry Rub for Smoky and Sweet Grilled Steaks

Coffee-Chili Dry Rub for Smoky and Sweet Grilled Steaks

Every grill lover knows that a good dry rub is a quick and easy way to enhance your meat’s flavors, but did you know that you can use coffee in your dry rubs? Yes, coffee! The bold and complex taste of your favorite coffee beans can pair beautifully with your favorite steak. 

A dry rub, very simply, is a mixture of dry spices and other ingredients that is rubbed into a piece of meat before cooking. With a good dry rub, you can both enhance and compliment the natural flavors of your meat. In this dry rub, the smokiness and mild heat of the ancho chili powder melds beautifully the coffee and brown sugar to create an earthy, robust, and slightly sweet rub perfect for beef, pork, or lamb steaks. In this recipe, decaffeinated coffee is the way to go, ensuring that you get the rich coffee flavor without the caffeine fix. 

The key to making any dry rub shine is to pat it into your steak with your fingers to ensure that it sticks onto the meat and packs the flavor punch that you’re looking for. Some people prefer to coat their meat in a thin layer of oil before applying a dry rub. This works too; it can visually help you to see where the dry rub has been applied, ensuring an even coating of the dry rub. 

Another amazing thing about this dry rub is that there’s no need to coat your meat for hours before cooking. This rub actually works best if you massage it in right before throwing your steaks on the grill. Most of the ingredients used in this recipe are already kitchen staples so this dry rub is an awesome trick to keep in your back pocket to quickly enhance your grilling experience. You can toss it together in minutes, excite your taste buds, and impress your cookout guests with minimum effort. Who doesn’t love that?
