  • 2 sirloin steaks 8-10 oz each well timed
  • 1 tablespoons finely ground coffee
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • Mix ingredient. 1 tablespoon finely ground coffee, 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, 1 teaspoon brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and black pepper. My coffee was the whole bean, so I needed to grind it first. Very fine grind is best.
  • Pat dry the steak. Trim well. Coat the steak with a moderate coat and rub in well.
  • Let meat rest at room temp for 15 minutes while grill preheats on high. Clean and oil grill.
  • Place meat over high heat and flip every 4-5 minutes. Cook until internal temp of about 145. About 15 minutes depending on grill and thicken. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.


Pro Tips:

  1. The coffee needs to be finely ground.
  2. Use a coffee that you love.
  3. If you have my All Purpose Seasoning – 7:2:1 and 7:2:2 , just use equal amounts of coffee and the seasoning.
  4. Cooking time will vary a lot due to thickness of the steak but more due to grill variations.
  5. This is relatively high in sodium. The rub is assumed to be 2/3 used. If you are concerned by the sodium, cut the salt in half.
