Coffee Rub Steak

Good morning! Last night I needed a turkey break, I originally had planned on preparing a casserole using leftover turkey, from a  recipe found online several years ago from Emeril. It is great and we really enjoyed it but I wanted something else. Then I remembered I had bought a few steaks last week and grabbed them. Thinking of using my wonderful Don Tomas coffee as a rub, this was the prime time to try it out.

I grabbed the ingredients and went to work.

Coffee Rub

4 TBSP of brown sugar
1 tsp Don Tomas coffee (fine ground)
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp baking cocoa powder

Mix it all together and rub on the steak. Sear the steak in a cast iron skillet with a tsp of coconut oil. If you want a well done steak, finish it in the oven wrapped in foil.


We had collards, steak, leftover mashed potatoes, rolls and leftover cranberry salad. Ah so good and easy as well.
