Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Sift ground espresso beans, brown sugar, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl. Generously coat all sides of each steak with espresso mixture. Place steaks on a plate and refrigerate for flavors to blend, about 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Heat a large oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat; add canola oil. Place steaks in the hot oil and cook until bottom of each steak is browned, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Flip steaks and place skillet in the preheated oven.

  • Cook the steaks in the preheated oven to your desired degree of doneness, 4 to 5 minutes for medium-rare. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Cover skillet with a tented piece of aluminum foil and let steaks rest for at least 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Ground strong coffee beans can be used in place of espresso beans, if desired.

Made as written except that I cut back to 1 teaspoon of cinnamon because a little goes a long way in this house and I grilled instead of baked. Not really sure how to rate this because I did not care for it but my husband loved it. The espresso beans did give it a deep rich flavor but just overpowered it for me. Again he thought they were excellent. If you are a coffee lover then you should give this a try and see what you think. Read More

It wasn't too great. Tasted like cinnamon coffee and nothing else. Also my steaks we're undercooked and not crusty and I cooked them for an extra few minutes including some time under the broiler. Didn't live up to expectation. Read More
