Cowboy Coffee Rubbed Steak W/Fresh Chopped Veggie Salad

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

The rub for this steak contains espresso and is really tasty. The recipe calls for one larger sirloin steak, but I made this with individual sirloin steaks from Kansas City Steaks, each 4 ounces. This was another gem from the Ellie Krieger show.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and preheat it over medium-high heat.
  2. In a small bowl combine all the ingredients for the rub and coat the steak well on both sides.
  3. Cook steak for about 7 minutes, turning once,then cooking another 7 minures for medium to medium-rare if using a whole piece of steak (or just cook until it is as rare or as cooked through as you prefer your steaks to be).
  4. For the Onions:.
  5. Brush the onion slices with oil and grill over medium heat, until the onions soften and get grill marks, about 6 minutes on each side.
  6. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  7. Allow steak to sit for 5 minutes before slicing.
  8. While steak & onions are cooking, prepare the salad: In a large bowl toss together the red pepper, cucumber, and tomato. Add the oil, vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper to taste, and toss to combine.
