Best Steak Ever Espresso Blend

Raven Higheagle


Steak is a great use for this bitter, salty and sweet rub, but it is also a winner on pork chops or loins and is amazing on racks of ribs. Panela is an unrefined cane sugar that resembles brown sugar and strong espresso keeps the rub from becoming too sweet.
