We love cooking with coffee; its versatile flavor profile makes it a perfect complement to both sweet desserts and savory dishes alike. Cooking with coffee doesn’t have to be a grandiose affair, there are as many humble dishes that honor the rich, distinct flavors of your favorite coffee roasts. For example, these three, super simple, super tasty recipes will have you heralding coffee as the next best thing since spice racks.
Prime Rib Coffee Rub
Speaking of spice racks, Prime rib isn’t exactly a humble cut of meat, but this incredibly flavorful rub will work with most slow-roast ready cuts. Massage a generous amount of your rub prior to roasting for an unforgettable meal.
1 prime rib roast (3 to 4 ribs)
2 tablespoons coffee grounds
4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 vanilla bean seeds scraped
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons to 2 coarse salt
Quinoa and Coffee Chili
These two seemingly disparate elements come together to create a chili so flavorful and robust everyone will clamor for the recipe. It’s completely up to you, however, whether or not you choose to share it. Get the complete recipe here.
Carrots Slow Roasted On Baked Coffee Beans
The Splendid Table called this deceptively simple dish, “…genius—sweet, smoky, and earthy genius.” Get the whole, unbelievably spartan recipe here and impress your dinner guests with your sophisticated simplicity.
