1 lb ribeye steak
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp mustard powder
2 tsp paprika powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tbsp + 2 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground Espresso



1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp ground cumin
2 shots Espresso




Put the olive oil, cumin and Espresso shots together into a large bowl and mix them well to make marinade.


Marinate the steak and toss it well in a resealable bag. Chill it for one hour.


Put all the ingredients (kosher salt, chili powder, mustard powder, paprika powder, onion powder, brown sugar, ground coriander and ground Espresso) into a bowl, mixing until they get perfectly blended.


Take the steak out and move it onto the board, patting dry with paper towels. Season it with Espresso mixture and rub it all over. Leave it for 30 minutes. During the time you can preheat your grill for direct high heat, about 10 minutes.


Put the steak on your grill and cook it until there are sear marks, grilling 2 minutes for each side.


While both sides are done, move the steak to continue cooking on the indirect area until it reaches the desired internal temperature (you can check with a digital thermometer). 


Slice the steak on the board after it cools down for 5 minutes, drizzle your favorite sauce onto it, serve warm and enjoy.





In case that some ingredients will fall off during the grilling, we advise rubbing the steak with a bit more Espresso mixture.
