Recipe of the Week: Coffee and Brown Sugar Crusted Skirt Steak

I've become a bit obsessed with skirt steak.  It's my go-to steak for grilling and this spice mix is a fantastic rub to put on just about anything.

It's Father's Day Weekend so treat Pop to something really good.  Cook him dinner for a change!


Coffee and Brown Sugar Crusted Skirt Steak


1/4 cup finely ground espresso coffee (not instant)
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
 1/2 teaspoons Kosher slat
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
2 1/2 pound skirt steak
1 teaspoon olive oil


Heat grill to high.

Combine the coffee, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, white pepper and chili powder in a bowl.

Remove the steak from the refridgerator and let come to room temperature, about 15 minutes.  

Rub steak with oil and sprinkle with the spice rub.  Massage the rub into the meat.

Grill until charred and medium-rare, 2-4 minutes per side.

Transfer to a cutting board and cover with foil and let rest for 5 minutes before thinly slicing at an angle.
