Cafe Pergolesi Espresso Steak Rub Recipe
1/2 cup ground sweet ancho chile or chile powder
1/4 cup Cafe Pergolesi ground espresso
4 Tablespoons hot smoked Spanish paprika
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Tablespoon dry yellow mustard powder
1 Tablespoon salt
2 Tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
1 Tablespoon powdered ginger
2 teaspoons Chipotle chile powder
Makes about 1 1/2 cups
Mix all up and store in an airtight container.
Keep for use on grilling steaks and other meats.
Apply liberally to one side only, put this side down first.
You can grill on an open fire or on a griddle indoors.
If using 1″ steaks, about 4-5 minutes on each side will give you a medium rare steak.
*I like to put a half teaspoon of herb butter on top of steak when serving.
*Another suggestion is to mix a few tablespoons of this rub into about 1/2 stick of butter, and my favorite idea – add some chocolate powder
