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!


  1. Mix all together.
  2. Rub on steaks, chicken, pork, or fish.
  3. Grill, fry, bake, or broil.
  4. Can be stored for up to 5 months in a shaker.

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!

fantastic!! i had 3 new york strips that i wanted to rub and leave in the fridge for a few days. i scaled the recipe down to 1 tablespoon montreal steak seasoning, 1 teaspoon onion powder and 1 teaspoon coffee grounds. i rubbed my steaks with a smidgen of soy sauce and olive oil and then rubbed all the seasoning on. let sit in the fridge for a few days. the flavor was awesome! everyone enjoyed these steaks, even the 2 year old! thanks, cindy!
