Coffee Rubbed Steak

4 Protein Servings/ 4 Portions


  • ½ Tablespoon finely ground coffee or espresso
  • ½ Tablespoon chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lb flank or skirt steak
  • 1 lime, quartered.


Preheat a grill, grill pan or cast iron skillet. Combine the coffee grounds with the chili powder, plus a few generous pinches of salt and pepper. Rub the spice mixture all over the steak. Cook the beef for 3–4 minutes per side, depending on the thickness, until slightly firm but still yielding.

Let the steak rest for at least 5 minutes, then slice thinly against the grain of the meat. Serve with a wedge of lime.
