Chipotle + Coffee Rubbed Maripos Ranch Grass-Fed Beef London Broil

London Broil can take a bold rub and this one doesn't disappoint! Make a simple rub using pantry ingredients, allow the flavors to do their magic, and then it’s ready for the grill. For a tender steak - don’t overcook. Medium rare is best. Allow meat to rest at least 10 minutes, then slice thinly across the grain.

(this serves approximately 4 people and takes around 60 minutes from start to finish)⁠

Rub Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp ground coffee
  • 1 tsp ground chipotle chili powder [sub smoked paprika for less heat] 
  • 1 tsp. ground cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt
  • Olive oil

Preparation Instructions:⁠

  1. Combine spices in a small bowl.
  2. Pat meat dry and brush with olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle seasoning generously, making sure to cover all sides of the meat. Press rub into meat.
  4. Let the meat sit for at least 15-minutes to allow it time to absorb the flavors of coffee, chocolate, and chipotle before grilling.
  5. Grill to preferred doneness. For this recipe, I grilled it on our Weber using indirect heat due to the thickness of the London broil  [Use a meat thermometer to determine doneness.  For medium rare-internal temperature 130-135 degrees].
  6. After taking the meat off the grill, tent the meat with foil and allow it to rest for 15 minutes, then slice thinly across the grain.
