Coffee-Crusted Beef Ribs
This espresso coffee rub adds a deep, smoky flavour to your beef ribs. This results is an irresistible crust, coupled with tender, juicy meat.
Beef Ribs coated in a smokey espresso rub provide a mind-blowing palate experience by blending two of the most popular barbecue styles; west coast style BBQ with the bold flavours of South American cuisine.
The coffee grounds in our Smokey Espresso rub add an earthy, smoky flavour to the ribs, while spices like cumin and coriander give the dish a complex aroma. Combined, they create a bold and exciting taste to beef ribs that is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. Trust me, I’ve tried a few in my time.
What Temperature to Cook Beef Ribs?

What Do I Recommend Serving Them With?
