Ingredients

How to make it

  • Combine all spices in a bowl.
  • Preheat a skillet over high heat. Brush each side of the steak with oil and then season each side liberally with salt and pepper. Rub 2 tablespoons of the coffee rub onto 1 side of each steak. Cook the steak, rub side down until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the steak over, cook for 2 minutes and then transfer to a barbecue grill. Place the steaks on aluminum foil folded to catch all drippings and not leak into the pit. Cook to medium-rare doneness, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Note: The original recipe calls for broiling the rib eyes in a 425 F oven. I found it easier to do the recipe in an outdoor grill. I also, mistakenly, left out the chili de arbol powder and the brown sugar. Both would have enhanced the recipe considerably.

    As close as I can tell, it's "adorable" mis-spelled.

    Seriously, Chile de Arbol powder is a type of chili powder. I haven't used it before and didn't know where to get it quickly, so I left it out. The recipe is fine without it.

    You could probably substitute your favorite brand of chili seasoning here. It's meant to give the recipe a kick. See: http://www.spicesgalore1.com/childearpow.html

    I'll be trying this THIS week! Recently had the best flank steak I've ever had with a coffee rub and this one fits the bill. Had the flank stead at Six Penn in downtown Pittsburgh. Thanks for supplying a recipe! Er, a PERFECT recipe...not just any old recipe.

    Agreed. My choice is a great, dark, Bavarian beer, like Black Forest. But then, it's only a suggestion.

    A cigar would be great, except I've been on the wagon for about 6 years now. Go ahead and enjoy it. Nothing lasts forever ;-)
