Coffee Marinated and Coffee-Rubbed Lamb Chops!

Bold and flavorful, coffee marinated and coffee-rubbed lamb chops have socked in and have a delicious coating of coffee and spices that mingle together to make the most delicious lamb chops ever!


Coffee rubbed chops have a little bit of a charred taste but it’s subtle . Also the taste will depend a lot on the other ingredients that you use in the rub. I combined freshly brewed coffee with different savory spices to create a rub that elevates a pleasing yummilicious taste.


Actually coffee is the perfect meat tenderizer, from ground coffee as a meat rub to brewed coffee as a marinade. The tannins in coffee helps to loosen up the meat without adding a strong flavor. This coffee marinates and the rub quickly gives this lamb a unique flavor boost. The coffee is socked with the juices in the meat, which helps to create a nice crust on the meat when it’s cooked in the oven.
