Smokey Coffee Rubbed Steak

Who doesn't love a good smokey, flavorful steak? I added fresh ground coffee to my rub and what was created was a beautiful crispy crust full of good smokey flavor. I seared the meat on the grill, then finished it in the oven.

Smokey Coffee Rubbed Steak
What you'll need:
  • 2-3 lbs beef tenderloin, or preferred roast cut
  • 2 heaping TBSP fresh ground coffee, medium or dark roast
  • 1.5 TBSP paprika
  • 1 TBSP dried oregano
  • 1 TBSP dried mustard
  • 1 TBSP garlic powder
  • 1 TBSP coconut sugar (optional)
  • 1/2 TBSP kosher salt
  • fresh crack black pepper, to taste

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 500F. Combine all the spices in a bowl, breaking up any large chunks. Pat beef down to dry it a bit. Rub the spice mixture all over the meat, make sure to really work it in. You want a nice crust.
  2. Grill each side of the roast for 2-3 minutes. Remove from grill and place in a roasting dish or baking pan. Bake the roast at 500F for 3-4 minutes per pound I had a 3 lb roast, so I baked it for 12 minutes). Turn the oven off after the allotted time and leave the roast in the oven for another 2-4 minutes per pound (I left it in for another 10 minutes). 
  3. Remove the roast from the oven and allow it to cool for at least 5-10 minutes and redistribute its juices. The cooking times will vary depending on how well you like your meat cooked. The times I used produced a nice medium. 
  4. Slice and serve with a nice side of grilled veggies and a baked potato!
