PIN Simple Coffee Rubbed Steak

The countdown is on.

Only a couple weeks until the day of pink, cookies, hearts and general love related things is upon us.

Also until we eat all the chewy gluten free dairy free brownies and paleo chocolate avocado cake that we can get our hungry mouths on!So, this steak is MEGA EASY. Which I think is kind of a trend on account of all the other steak recipes I’ve shared – keto steak, mango curry steak and Asian miso steak sheet pan dinner, have also been SUPER easy. We even had balsamic steak salad which, you guessed it, EASY.

This steak is “embarrassed to share it with you kind of easy”, but you don’t mind right? I mean, there’s coconut, spice, coffee AND chocolate so I figured your face would be like “yum,” and you would forgive me for sharing something so easy peasy.

If you’re like Mr. FFF and I, staying in sometimes sounds like a MUCH more appealing option on Valentine’s Day. To cozy up in your own space and cook together can be so fun and romantic, too! Today’s easy coffee rub for steak is going to make you throw your plans away and stay in instead. It’s deep and rich coffee flavor combined with the perfect cut of steak is enough to make anyone’s mouth water! It also uses CHOCOLATE as an ingredient, so I mean, who can resist! It’s perfect to cook up for the one you love to share a meal on Valentine’s Day!

Does Coffee Rub taste like Coffee?

Cooking up a couple of perfectly cooked steaks with this delicious coffee steak rub recipe is definitely a good idea as it will spice up your steak and make it unique! However, if you’ve never combined coffee with steak before, you might be wondering what it tastes like. The coffee rub does have a coffee flavor to it, but once you cook the steaks the flavor runs into the meat, complimenting it and deepening the flavor of the steak itself!

How to make Coffee Rubbed Steak

Make the Rub

Combine the rub ingredients in a bowl and set aside. 

Prepare the Steak

Using a sharp knife on a cutting board, trim off any large and visible chunks of fat from the steak. Next, take the rub, and using your hands, generously rub it all over the steak on all sides. Cover it and chill in the fridge for at least an hour to ensure the flavor can infuse through the meat.

Heat

Set your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and let it preheat. Spray a grill pan with cooking oil spray and preheat it on high. 

Cook

Sear the steak on both sides for a minute or two. Next, reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking until the steak reaches your desired doneness. Once cooked, transfer the steak to a plate and cover tightly with tin foil to rest. 

Toast

While the steak rests, line a pan with parchment and place the coconut flakes on the paper. Pop it in the oven and toast the coconut for a minute or two, until it is lightly golden brown and fragrant. 

DEVOUR

Top your steaks with the toasted coconut, serve and enjoy!

This steak pairs well with so many different sides to make the perfect meal for a date night or celebration of any kind! I recommend serving it alongside some red skin mashed potatoes or whole30 mashed potatoes along with a side of hot veggies! Some of my personal faves are cumin roasted carrots and oven balsamic roasted brussels sprouts.
