While in Boise, Idaho we visited a restaurant called Diablo and Sons. I ordered a steak, and it was cooked to perfection. The steak had a coffee rub, and I am hooked. I usually make a double batch, so I have some on hand. Try this rub next time you grill!
½ cup ground coffee
¼ cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons salt
1 tsp cumin
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon + 1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
Cayenne pepper to taste (optional)
4 steaks of your choosing, allow to come to room temp. (We like Ribeye)
Put all ingredients, besides the steak, in a bowl and stir to combine.
Once your steak is at room temperature, season both sides of the steak with the coffee rub.
For a nice medium rare steak, Heat your grill to a high. Grill the steaks until golden brown and slightly charred, about 4 minutes per side.
Allow steak to rest a few minutes prior to serving.
