Brewin' with Brandi: Espresso Steak Rub
You know it's summer when Brandi is breaking out the barbecue! We've had a wonderfully unseasonable warm front here in Seattle, and although we know that nature is teasing us and that we have a few months of rainy gray days until summer shows up for a couple of weeks in late September, we're pretending it's going to stick around.
Watch her whip up this delicious steak rub, grill on the 'cue and then find out what one of SCG's lovely carnivores thinks of the concoction.
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 cup finely ground coffee -- we chose Middle Fork's Tough as Nails blend to give it maximum oomph!
Combine all ingredients together and mix until well incorporated. Thoroughly coat your steaks ... you can either throw them right on the grill or let them hang out with the rub on them for awhile if you want a more powerful flavor. Cook to your desired temperature and enjoy!
