    Very tasty! I used French vanilla grinds but I think it would taste better with regular coffee grinds. Very flavorful!

    It was delicious! I don’t like marinades as I want the flavor of the steak to come through. I didn’t use all of the rub but gave it a good coating. It was great, husband and kids even loved it! WIN

    Wow, this is a good rub!! Mine didn’t really “crust” on the steak like another reviewer mentioned, but it did stick. I couldn’t find flank steak so I used it on top sirloin. YUM!! I rubbed the steak thoroughly with melted refined coconut oil, and then rubbed & patted on the seasonings thoroughly. I then seared it in a very hot pan for 2-3 min on each side (to achieve a medium rare state). Also, just an FYI, if you are concerned that the ingredients of this rub will create an overly strong flavor, you’re wrong. Even though it has coffee, cumin and cayenne pepper in it, it offers a subtle, yet distinct flavor. Very, very good!

    A simple, yet robust rub! Loved the way it crusted on the steak. We had a nice 2lb. Grass-fed flank steak and this was the perfect rub for it!
