Oh haiiii there
Happy Thursday! Nope, it isn’t G-baby Thursday anymore, but never fear, it will now be G-Baby Fridays that we will be celebrating which is super awesome sauce for me because Friday’s are a nice quiet work day for me, usually. #famouslastwords
It also means that when Poppa Kevin gets off work he is completely relaxed because he has the weekends off, and he is game to fire up the grill, even if it is raining. Ya, us Washingtonians are hardcore about our grilling! I swear I never grilled this much the entire time I lived in San Diego!
But, with all of that grilling, things can get a bit repetitive and, dare I say boring at times? Ssshhhh don’t tell Kevin I said that!
You see, my darling Kevin tends to be a grilling “purist” so, until I came around, he was all about the salt, pepper, maybe some garlic powder, bing bang boom toss that bad boy on the grill and get a cookin’!
Thennnnnnnnnnnnn he meets me
I am Miss “What the hell lets try this on it”!
When I told him there was coffee in this rub he looked at me like I had lost my mind. I was just like “Dude…..have you not met me???” Why are you so surprised?
But again, as usual, everything turned out fine and he loved it. When will this man ever learn to trust me?
He actually loved it so much that he….
Wait for it…….
Let me put it on a ribeye!!!
BOOM! That is just crazy talk people. I seriously contemplated pod people for a hot minute!
He then suddenly transformed into some sort of judge for one of those cooking channel shows.
“Well I really like the deep flavor the coffee give it, but I think the cumin is a bit too assertive (I swear he said assertive) so you might want to cut that back a little”.
*Cue me picking my jaw up off of the floor*
Who is this guy and what did he do with my boyfriend????
But, I do have to humble myself and tell you that he was right. Once I cut the cumin back the coffee and chile spice really did their thang and rocked the meat. Dang, why did he have to be right?
Anywhoo, let my little little lesson of humility benefit your weekend grilling plans.
Grilling up some beef?
Slap some of this good stuff on it, let it sit for a bit, then toss it on the grill and BOOYAH you got yourself some tasty grilled up grub!!
