This is excellent on a nice thick steak. Make sure to dry the meat before you apply. If the steak is thin, use sparingly. Makes enough for 4 steaks.

This was just about the best tasting ribeye I've ever made. I used more garlic, and cheated by using the contents of a K-cup coffee pod because I didn't have any beans. The combination of flavors was so unexpected, yet they all worked to give a superb finish to the meat. I'm going to try it with chicken, too.

This was wonderful!! Great idea to use coffee. We didn't have Old Bay and decided to substitute a Cincinnati chili rub for it. Also bringing the steaks to room temperature made for evenly cooked, juicy meat with that awesome caramelized crust. This is a winner!

This was good. I marinated a flank steak over night and then put it in homemade tortillas with some grilled red onions. Very good and will make again.
