Coffee - Steak "WAKE UP YOUR INNER COWBOY" DIY BBQ Rub - 52 Grilling Time Secret Extras

Pin It Now!


Beef - Cow - Carnivore - MEAT!!!

Fall grilling season is about my favorite time of the year.  No more standing over the grills when it's 90 plus degrees out.  Low humidity and a wonderful crispness in the air.

Grilling steak is about as easy as it gets.  Possibly the oldest form of cooking, just heat and eat.  I only really have two tips for a novice, first and most important is to use an instant read meat thermometer.  They can cost as little as $20 but considering the cost of steak these days and the FACT that once you learn how to use 'em, they guarantee a perfect medium rare steak every time... Money well spent.

Medium rare steak, 135 degrees.  Remove immediately once the center of the steak reads that temp.

Only other tip is to let your meat rest for at least 10 minutes (I let mine rest for 15) before cutting.  This allows the muscles to relaxe, allowing the meat to absorb the juices and again, helps to guarantee that tender and juicy steak.  Nothing dried out.

As to the rub (keep scrolling to see the easy inexpensive DIY recipe), this is a wonderful spicy rub that does indeed feature a few TBS of coffee.  As the juices of the steak mingle with the spices (and coffee), the steak takes on a deep rich flavor not to be beat!

And a BTW, come back tomorrow to see the recipe  to this AMAZING Peach Salsa served with the steak.  Nice spicy powerful steak with a punch and a sweet and savory cooling peach salsa... One Perfect Bite (if you will excuse the expression).

This is that "Full of Flavor" steak that back yard grill masters dream of serving.  Unique flavors that will have your guests proclaiming you the Master of your back yard Domain!!!

Enjoy indeed!
