Coffee and Brown Sugar-Crusted Skirt Steak

Serves: 8

This spice mix is a great go to rub for the grill - it tastes equally great on pork chops, rack of lamb, and a filet of salmon.

Total Time:


1/4 cup finely ground espresso coffee (not instant)
1/4 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon Kosher ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/8 teaspoon five-spice powder
pinch cayenne pepper
2 1/2 pounds skirt beef steaks, cut into 4 pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil


Heat grill to high.

Combine coffee, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, white pepper, five-spice powder, and cayenne pepper in a bowl.

Remove steak from refrigerator and let come to room temperature, about 15 minutes. Rub steak with oil, and sprinkle with rub. Massage rub into meat.

Grill until charred and medium-rare, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board, cover with foil and let rest 5 minutes before thinly slicing at an angle. Serve immediately.
