"A stimulating rub for meat that is easily made with ingredients you probably already have. Excellent on porterhouse steaks, and pretty good on chicken and lamb." — MTKRIZMAN

ground coffee beans
ground black pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons
This worked out GREAT! I rubbed it on chicken quarters & grilled it. The guys at the firehouse absolutely loved it...which was a surprise because when they saw me broiling the coffee & adding it to the mix I heard several cries of "I'm not eating that". So, word to the wise...if you're making this for a picky eater, assemble the ingredients out of sight.
Good. Quite peppery, according to my son, but my husband and I enjoyed it. Used it on the rib-eyes.
I use Uncle Buc's Coffee meat rub on fish and beef over an open grill and my family just loves the result.
A good rub should be a blend of ingredients that all marry to form a unique flavor all its own. So many are kept secret for that very reason. This was not the case here, unfortunately. While the coffee was not apparent at all, the same can’t be said for the cumin, which was too bold. Too much pepper as well.
an outstanding rub. I used whole crushed cumin for some extra zip. I used this on a pork cut in the Philippines called "Liempo" (a pork belly cut) that resembles a giant, 10 ounce piece of bacon (though uncured). Put it on overnight, and qued it the next day. It was unreal!! My guests, (all Filipinos) could not believe how good it was, and begged me for the recipe, which I did not tell!! As they say here, "Secret!!"
This was an interesting rub! I used it on beef for beef & broccli and it was a hit! Will make again to keep some on hand.
Strong flavor, but it still manages not to overpower the meat. The crust it created was yummy!
Used this rub on a roast I slow smoked on the grill. People couldn't quite put their finger on one of the ingredients (the coffee), and they LOVED it. I will definately use this rub again.
