Gatheredtable
inspired by  Mesa Grill Restaurant

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons finely ground coffee beans
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Spanish paprika
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 pound steak

Directions

Prep: 1. Create the dry rub mixture by combining everything except salt and steak in a bowl. 2. Salt steak on both sides, then sprinkle both sides with the dry rub mixture. 3. Lay steaks on a rack on top of a baking sheet and place in refrigerator, uncovered, for at least 1 hour, ideally 3-6 hours. Make: 1. Preheat grill to medium-high. 2. Place the steaks on the grill and cook to desired doneness, turning once (for medium, about 5-6 minutes on each side).

Notes

This delicious dry rub is a great alternative to marinades (and yes the steak is still moist!)
