Cowboy Steak With Coffee Rub

I love steak. I love coffee. Heck, I even love cowboys. What's not to like about a steak with a coffee rub?

This nice little rub by Ellie Krieger ( Food Network's resident "Clean Eating" cook / nutritionist ) is getting tucked away as a future go-to for rubs! Coffee rub is a classic preparation for steak and the addition here of a medium chili powder will give the meat a subtle, sweet spiciness.


  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ancho chili powder, or other chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fine ground espresso coffee
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
