This nice little rub by Ellie Krieger ( Food Network's resident "Clean Eating" cook / nutritionist ) is getting tucked away as a future go-to for rubs! Coffee rub is a classic preparation for steak and the addition here of a medium chili powder will give the meat a subtle, sweet spiciness.
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ancho chili powder, or other chili powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons fine ground espresso coffee
- 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
