Cut from the short loin primal just behind the ribs, strip steak has good marbling and a strong beefy flavor. Our Coffee Rubbed Strip Steak recipe uses a coffee and spice blend to accentuate that flavor without overpowering it. Ground coffee is combined with coriander, smoked paprika and other spices for a robust flavor profile that is savory with a touch of sweetness. When grilled, the grounds caramelize to seal in the juices.

Ingredients

FOR THE STEAKS

  • 4 strip steaks, 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches thick
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

FOR THE COFFEE STEAK RUB

  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ground coffee
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoon ground coriander

Directions

Step 1 Of 4
1
Preheat grill to 500°F.
2
Brush the steaks on both sides with olive oil.
3
In a medium-size bowl, combine kosher salt, ground coffee, black pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and ground coriander. Then rub the steaks on both sides with the coffee and spice blend.
Hot Tip
To cook more evenly from edge to center, let the steak rest at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling.
4
Place the steaks on the hot grill grate and close the lid. Using an instant read thermometer, cook until they reach an internal temperature between 125°F for rare and 160°F for well done, 5-10 minutes per side.
Hot Tip
Give the steaks a quarter turn a few minutes before flipping to get those diamond-shaped steakhouse grill marks.
