"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.
This was SO strange. The flavor was great but it smelled like the candied nuts they sell at Disneyland while it was grilling. It also had a chocolate-y flavor. I think I put way too much rub on each steak. I normally overdo rubs and they come out great- this one had lots of spice- save the extra for another day. I only used 1 tsp black pepper (fine ground) and thought it was plenty.
Suprising and delicious! We applied the rub and then froze it for later and it came out great!
