Coffee Rubbed Steak

I've been craving steak lately and while I love my typical steak marinade, I decided I needed to branch out and try something new. While doing so, it seems a lot of people are rediscovering coffee rubs for steaks. The recipes are numerous, but really they are almost all exactly the same really. Additions and options for personal taste. See what you think!

¼ cup of chili powder
¼ cup of finely ground espresso or 1/3 c finely ground coffee beans
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon kosher (large crystal) salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon oregano
2 teaspoons ground ginger

Combine all ingredients and rub the coffee rub into the steak and cook to the desired doneness.Print Friendly and PDF
