The whole family loved this one. So yummy and easy. I did not have Kona coffee, so I used Decaf Expresso Beans. Used it on 2 very large NY Filets (like Filet mignons only leaner and larger. The meat was so tender and flavorful. I still have a lot of rub left over and can't wait to try it on pork ribs with maybe some cayenne to give it a kick. Thank you, this will be our go to rub for so many things.
