Coffee Chili Rubbed Steak
Prep Time:
5 minutes plus 45-60 minutes refrigeration
Cook Time:
15-20 Minutes
Difficulty Level:

4 Flat Iron Steaks (8 oz each)

Canola Oil

4 Tablespoons Coffee Chili Rub


Grill Directions:

  1. Blot the steaks dry. Brush the meat with a little canola oil. Spread the coffee chili rub on a baking sheet and roll the steaks in the mixture to coat, using about 1 tablespoon per steak. Cover and refrigerate for 45-60 minutes.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium high. Grill 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium rare. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board and let rest 10 minutes before slicing.

Stove-to-Oven Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.  
  2. Heat oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high until shimmering. Cook steaks 2 minutes or so on each side to create a nice crust.
  3. Transfer the skillet to the oven, and cook steaks until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 125° for medium-rare, about 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer steaks to a cutting board and let rest 10 minutes before slicing.
