This pre-rub is the perfect way to add a delicious flavor and texture to your blade steak. To make the pre-rub, you will need freshly ground coffee, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and sea salt. Start by combining all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix together until it forms a paste.
When you’re ready to prepare your steak, lightly season the steak with salt and pepper, then spread the pre-rub over the entire surface of the steak. Then, press it into the steak firmly using your hands. The pre-rub mixture should adhere nicely to the steak and create a flavorful crust.
The pre-rub will not only add flavor but also help to seal in the juices of the steak when cooked. The flavors of the coffee, chile, and garlic will combine to form a delicious crust that will take your steak to the next level.
Once you’ve applied the pre-rub, let your steak sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking. You can then cook it however you prefer: pan-frying, grilling, or baking. If pan-frying, cook for 3 minutes on each side. If grilling, cook for 4-6 minutes on each side or until desired doneness. If baking, cook for 15 minutes at 375F or until the desired doneness.
Making a delicious coffee chile pre-rub for your blade steak is surprisingly easy! Here are the steps to follow:
1. Begin by combining equal parts of your favorite coffee grinds and ground chile powder in a small bowl. You can use any kind of ground coffee or chile powder, depending on how spicy you like your steak.
2. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to the mix and stir everything together until you have a uniform paste.
3. Take your blade steak and generously coat it on both sides with the paste. Make sure all the crevices are covered and the steak has an even coating.
4. Let the steak sit for at least 15 minutes so that the flavors of the paste have time to penetrate into the meat. This will also help tenderize the steak.
5. Heat a skillet over high heat and add oil or butter. When the pan is hot, carefully place your steak in the center and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, depending on your desired doneness.
6. Remove the steak from the pan and let it rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Serve and enjoy!
