Transcend Coffee (the one located at Mother’s Market in downtown Edmonton 109 street & 103 Ave), gave me some samples to try the other day. This is the wonderfully delicious way I chose to use them: One pot of coffee and one special steak rub =:-) !
Both were delicious; truly a Jewel of a bean! I also made good use of other products from vendors at the market such as dandelion powder from Dandy Joe, Purple potatoes from Green Eggs & Ham and steaks from Sunworks Farm.* As you might guess, organic speaks alot at the market, although I am truly a consumer of all good food.
For the Rub:
4 tblsp. LaJoya coffee beans ground fine
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. “Dandy Joe” Dandelion powder
1 tsp. sea salt (fine)
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 nice striploin steaks
I heated my GrillingStones up to 450-500, meanwhile, I tossed the above seasonings together in a zipperlock baggy. I then placed the two steaks in and shook them up in the bag; pressing any excess seasoning onto them while still in the bag. I hate getting my fingers in there at times. I then placed them in the fridge for about 15 minutes.
once my side dishes were on the way, I took the bag out to the hot Grilling Stones on my grill and placed the steaks on there for about 2 min. for each side with the lid open. And there you have it! I hope you enjoy the recipe and hopefully you will stop by the market and visit each of the vendors. Cheers to wonderful Grilling and Chilling!
*I was not paid for making this recipe. Only given the samples of the coffee. It was my decision to unite the products from the vendors of the market to show you how to make a great and easy steak rub and to highlight some nice vendors I have met.
