Makes 4 servings


  1. An hour before cooking, remove steaks from refrigerator and let sit, covered, at room temperature.

  2. When ready to cook, rub each side of steak with 1 tablespoon Coffee Chile Pepper Rub.

  3. Heat heavy-bottomed skillet, such as cast iron, over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil, and when just starting to smoke, add 2 steaks to pan. Cook until well-seared on each side and cooked to desired doneness, about 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.

  4. Transfer cooked steaks to cutting board. Wipe out pan, return to heat and repeat process with remaining steaks and 2 tablespoons oil, letting steaks rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.
