Ingredients

Makes sufficient dry rub for 4  twelve ounce striploin steaks.

  • 3 tsp very finely ground coffee I grind whole beans to a very fine Espresso powder
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic or garlic powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground coriander seed
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp chipotle powder more or less to taste, depending on how spicy you like it
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp powdered ginger

Instructions

  1. Mix together the coffee, garlic, salt, black pepper, coriander seed, brown sugar, chipotle powder, paprika and ginger until well blended:
  2. Rub each of the steaks on all sides with about 1 tsp olive oil
  3. Sprinkle both sides of the steak and the edges with the coffee and spice rub. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour or even overnight. Before you are ready to grill the steaks take them out of the fridge to warm up for at least a half hour.
  4. I used an oiled cast iron grill pan to cook this steak but a lightly oiled cast iron skillet also works well if you are not using the back yard grill.
  5. Grill over high heat until your desired internal temperature is reached. I like medium rare at about 135 degrees F on a meat thermometer. Tent the steaks loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
