For the special occasion when you want to treat someone special to dinner, try out this grilling recipe.  You will achieve steakhouse flavor for only a small fraction of the price, and have a sweet and casual dinner.  

This rub produces a bold, complex taste that I love.  Hope you will too. 

Step 1: Coffee rub ingredients

You will need the following:
  • 2 Tbsp ground coffee beans
  • 2 Tbsp ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

mmmm....this looks awesome. it resembles Cowboy Rub by McCormick. i think i might try this...one question though. why do you broil the coffee first. the coffee is already roasted...
Supposedly it is to make the coffee have a more bold and complex flavor, but I just did some research on this and it seems to be a bit controversial on reheating coffee grinds. I'll have to try this without heating the coffee grinds next time to see the difference.
hmm...well, i will be patiently awaiting your answer as to the difference. Until then, i am going to try this when i get my next paycheck!
That whole plate just looks wonderful.
Thank you! :)
I want to eat
