This wonderfully creative and impressive recipe includes Gourmet Coffee in the ingredients and comes from Cook Like James:


  • 3 tablespoons finely ground espresso coffee
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon Spanish sweet paprika
  • 1 ½ tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoons ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • 2 bone-in or boneless rib-eye steaks, 2-inches thick, approximately 1 1/2 pounds each
  • Canola or olive oil
  • Salt and coarsely ground black pepper


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and adjust oven rack to center position. Combine all spices in a bowl and set aside.

2. Preheat a cast iron grill pan over high heat.

3. Brush each side of the steak with oil and then season each side liberally with salt and pepper. Rub 2 tablespoons of the coffee rub onto 1 side of each steak.

4. Cook the steak, rub side down until nicely browned, about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the steak over, cook for 2 minutes and then transfer to a baking sheet and cook in the oven to medium-rare doneness, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
