Coffee-Rubbed Ribeye Steaks

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

This is based on a Bobby Flay recipe, modified to use ingredients I commonly have on hand. I also BBQ the steaks instead of pan-frying. The rub adds a very nice spice to these delicious ribeyes!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all spices together in a small bowl.
  2. Brush steaks on both sides with olive oil.
  3. Rub each side of the steaks with 1-2 tablespoons of the spice mixture.
  4. Let steaks stand out of refrigerator for 1/2 hour.
  5. Preheat BBQ grill to high.
  6. Cook steaks directly on grill for 2 minutes, flip and rotate 1/4 turn. Repeat three more times until steaks have been cooking for 8 minutes total, 4 on each side. The rotation will leave nice grill marks on the steaks.
  7. Move steaks to upper rack of grill, reduce heat to medium, and close lid.
  8. Continue cooking, flipping every few minutes, until desired doneness is reached. I find 1 1/2 inch thick steaks generally take 16-18 minutes of total cooking time to reach Medium rareness.
