Coffee-Rubbed Cowboy Steak

Coffee-Rubbed Cowboy Steak


Coffee-Rubbed Cowboy Steak (4 Servings)

  • 1 tbsp. ground coffee
  • 4 bone-in Angus cowboy steaks, around 12 oz. each
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tbsp. sea salt
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. sugar


Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

Brush the grill grate with olive oil.

Trim the Angus cowboy steaks of their excess fat with a knife.

Use the back of the knife to scrape the bones clean of the connective tissue.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the ground coffee, chili powder, sea salt, garlic powder, fresh ground black pepper, dried thyme, and sugar.

Apply about 1 tsp. of the rub mixture onto each side of the four steaks.

Place the steaks on the preheated grill and grill uncovered.

For rare, grill the steaks for about 3 minutes on each side.

For medium-rare, grill the steaks for about 4 minutes on each side.

Medium temperature steaks call to grill for about 5 minutes on each side.

For medium-well, grill the steaks for about 6 minutes on each side.

For well-done, grill the steaks for about 7 minutes on each side.

Remove the steaks and allow them to rest for at least 5 minutes before serving, the temperature of the steaks should rise another 5 degrees.

Buon Appetito!
