Thanksgiving is coming soon and of course Turkey is on the menu for our family! So I thought I’d try out a Coffee Rub I created and have my sister and her family over to try it out with an early turkey dinner. Needless to say, it turned out to be a huge success. As coffee typically does with meat, the flavor of the meat itself was enhanced nicely without getting too much “coffee taste” when eating the turkey. The coffee also added a very robust flavor to the gravy. So I think it’s safe to say this would be a unique and super yummy way to put a twist on your traditional holiday meal that’s sure to get praises all around! Tell us what you think of it when you try it!
I’m not great at carving turkey by the way. But if you want a good tutorial on that, check out this youtube video from Alton Brown of Food Network. He does a really nice job of showing you how to carve the turkey nicely.
