Homemade Coffee Steak Rub

Sharing is caring!

This homemade coffee steak rub will upgrade your boring steak dinner to a 5 star restaurant recipe!

I am all about the dry rubs these days. My husband makes a MEAN steak — I mean it is restaurant-worthy.

Recently, I got my hand in the kitchen and made these amazing coffee-crusted steaks using this delicious homemade rub.

How to Make Homemade Coffee Steak Rub

This recipe is so easy to make and will make every single steak you make from here on out that much more mouthwatering.


It will be so delicious, you won't even need steak sauce — seriously. The blend of coffee mixed with the salt and sugared spices make the perfect combination for your meal.


You can leave it in your spice cabinet for about 6 months, but if you are like me, you will use it so much that it won't even last 6 months. These cute little jars I found on Amazon are the perfect jars for spices.

I like to serve a good steak with side dishes like my Southern Cream Cheese Noodles, or my Restaurant Style Potato Skins. You could even serve a side of these Blistered Green Beans.
