My hubby and I love a nice piece of steak from time to time or on special occasions. This Grilled Rib-eye Steaks with Spicy Coffee Rub is one of our favorite recipes.




1 tablespoon olive oil 2 rib-eye steaks (a little over 1 lb each, bone-in) For the rub: 1 tablespoon coffee, grounded 1 tablespoon kosher salt 1 tablespoons brown sugar ½ tablespoon freshly ground black pepper ½ teaspoon red chili pepper flakes 1 tablespoon granulated garlic 1 tablespoon smoked paprika

In a medium mixing bowl, add all the rub ingredients together and stir well with a fork. Gently massage the olive oil onto the steaks and then sprinkle all the rub onto all sides of the meat. Gently pat the rub so it sticks onto the steaks. Marinate for 2 hours in the fridge, or overnight. When ready to grill, take the steaks out from the fridge 30 minutes before grilling to take some chills off the meat. Preheat the grill on high. Grease the grate of the grill with vegetable oil. Sear the steak for 3 minutes on each side, or until it reach the doneness you prefer. Insert a thermometer into the thickest part of the meat to make sure. For medium-rare, 130-135 degree F; for medium, 140-145 degree F; and for medium-well, 150-155 degree F. Remove the steaks from heat, cover with a piece of foil and let them rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
