Coffee Grounds Steak Rub Recipe

Because of coffee’s acidity, it naturally pairs well with the savory tones of red meat. This coffee rub is a delicious and easy way to incorporate the two ingredients!



  • Steak
  • 1 cup ground coffee
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp chili pepper
  • Salt & Pepper


  • Combine the coffee, salt, and peppers in a small bowl.
  • Heavily coat the steaks in the rub.
  • Let the steak sit for at least 30 minutes.
  • Brush off most of the rub, and grill.
  • Enjoy!
