Chuck Wagon Steak Rub

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by Cindy1

The secret is the COFFEE!!! This is a variation of a steak rub from a morning news show (dont remember which one), only they made the Montreal Steak Seasoning from scratch....I say forget that...this was a big hit & so much easier!!! Too much pepper? Add more O. powder and coffee. Enjoy!

Amazing! This was by far one of the best tasting and easiest rubs! I gave it fours stars cuz I thought it needed a salty note. Could be personal preference but I thought the flavor was spot on just needed some salt. A good sprinkle of sea salt fixed it up perfectly! Thanks so much for posting my hubbys new fav steak rub!
