Sizzle & Flavor Unleashed - Coffee-Rubbed Steak Recipe!

Ready to jazz up your steak game? Get those taste buds dancing with our irresistible Coffee Rubbed Steak recipe. Here's what you need and how to nail it:


  • New York strip steaks (1½-inch thick recommended)

  • Finely ground coffee beans

  • Garlic powder

  • Chipotle powder

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • Brown sugar

  • Optional: oil (for stovetop cooking)

Making the Coffee Rub:

  • Whisk together coffee grounds, garlic powder, chipotle powder, salt, pepper, and brown sugar until it's one big happy family.

  • Coffee grounds aren't just for brewing – they tenderize the steak, keeping it juicy and delivering that perfect medium doneness with a crispy crust.

  • And hey, coffee's acidity? It's the secret sauce that amps up the steak's flavor!

Adding the Rub to the Steaks:

  • Pat your steaks dry with a paper towel to bid farewell to excess moisture.

  • Rub that coffee mixture onto both sides of the steaks like you're giving them a flavor massage.

  • Let those bad boys chill – either at room temperature for 20-30 minutes or pop them in the fridge for up to 8 hours (just bring them back to room temp before cooking).

Cooking on the Stovetop:

  • Heat a thin layer of oil in a cast iron skillet until it's showtime with a bit of smoke.

  • Sear the coffee-rubbed steaks for 2-3 minutes on each side. For a medium temp, add 1-2 extra minutes on each side.

  • Let the steaks rest under a foil blanket for 10 minutes before tasting.


Cooking on the Grill:

  • Preheat the grill to 'hot hot hot.'

  • Throw those coffee-rubbed steaks over direct heat for 3-4 minutes on each side.

  • Let them rest (covered, of course) for 10 minutes.
