Espresso Steak Rub

February 12, 2021

Although salt and pepper might be your conventional choice of steak seasoning, do you ever find yourself wanting to try something a little unique? That’s where this recipe comes in. 

It might sound a little strange, but this espresso rub will bring out brand new aromas and a unique kick to your steak. The acidity in espresso coffee grounds works the same as the acidity in red-wine does. The pairing complements each other and enhances your meat’s natural flavour without overpowering anything. If you have some high-quality steaks like any of our sustainable grass-finished options, all you need now is a little leap of faith to try this recipe out!
