Grilled Espresso Steak

Grilled Espresso Steak

This recipe combines the bold flavors of My Fabulous Food's Shot of Espresso rub with the smoky char of a grill, resulting in a steak experience that is nothing short of extraordinary. The combination of sugar, salt, pepper, espresso powder, onion, paprika, and a hint of cayenne creates a unique and robust rub that enhances the natural richness of the steak. Each juicy bite is infused with a subtle coffee aroma, complemented by a delightful balance of savory and slightly spicy notes. Grilled to perfection, these steaks are an irresistible treat for all steak lovers. 


  • 4 steaks (such as ribeye, New York strip, or filet mignon)
  • 2 tablespoons of My Fabulous Food's Shot of Espresso rub
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil, for brushing


1) Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
2) Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel to remove excess moisture. Season both sides of the steaks with salt and black pepper according to your taste preferences.
3) Sprinkle My Fabulous Food's Shot of Espresso rub evenly over both sides of the steaks, pressing gently to ensure the rub adheres well to the meat. Allow the steaks to sit for about 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to penetrate.
4) Brush the grill grates with olive oil to prevent sticking.
5) Place the seasoned steaks on the preheated grill and cook for approximately 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or adjust the cooking time to achieve your desired level of doneness.
6) While grilling, avoid flipping the steaks too frequently to allow a nice sear to develop on each side.
7) Once the steaks are cooked to your liking, remove them from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes to allow the juices to redistribute.
8) Serve the Grilled Espresso Steaks hot and pair them with your preferred accompaniments, such as garlic mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus, or a fresh green salad.
