Now this is amazing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I typically am a salt and pepper and good cut of meat sort of guy when it comes to steaks but every now and then it's fun to spice it up a bit and this recipe does that. I like the rub a lot but it is spicy and you should sorta know that going in....probably not some folks flavor but I like it. One tip I'd add is that if you're doing this I'd highly recommend doing the searing portion of the recipe on the grill.....just crank your gas or charcoal grill as hot as you can get it and put the cast iron pan on the grate and sear the steaks there..... unless you have a really good hood in your kitchen.....otherwise it'll smoke up the house badly. overall a fun little variation if you want a different flavor that day. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This combo of spices did not work for either of us. As others have noted, it just seemed too much going on. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Although I found that you didn't need 1/4 of the rub called for this recipe, I've put the rub in the freezer and have already used it for a second time. Excellent accompanyment to a great steak, not overpowering. You will not regret making this recipe. Tastes great on Chops too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband I both disliked this alot! It was too much going on and tasted awful. We ended up going out for supper :( item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree, too many spices. I stuck with just the Paprika, coffee, brown sugar, S&P. Sometimes less is more! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy to make, delicious results. item not reviewed by moderator and published
to much spice item not reviewed by moderator and published
Did it on the barbecue and enjoyed it! Grind the coffee very fine and use your taste buds to adjust the amounts of sugar and salt in the mix needed to counter any bitterness. It's very spicy, like the recipe says, only do one side of the meat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've got to say that I usually enjoy Bobby Flay's recipes. I agree with ntegg to say that it definetly delivered some taste. The meat was moist and tender. The only problem: neither my wife nor I liked it. We still ate it, but there was too much paprika and coffee. Maybe it was the wrong kind of paprika or the wrong type of coffee... I don't know. One thing I know: don't take it badly, but we'll not do it again. Sorry! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe. My family did not want to try it because of the rub, now this is their favorite rib eye recipe. yes it does smoke up the house a bit. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was not good. The coffee got a burnt flavor to it, although the meat was definitely not overcooked. It was edible, but definitely not something I would do again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We were unprepared to have it smoke as much as it did but the rub really delivered on taste. It added a lot of texture to the meat retained the moisture. It was very good and complimented the steak well. Definitely a recommended rub! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent. We made this for Valentine's dinner. We did mix up the chilies some, but great combo - chilies and coffee! The leftovers made for some great hash to go with eggs and tortillas the next day! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great steak! I made it for Valentine's day for my family. For those of you who are wondering (like I was,if it tastes like coffee...the answer is, No. Being the cook, I knew it had coffee in it so I was able to detect it but for someone who does not know there is coffee in it... they will not know. I didn't tell my husband, father-in-law, or kids what it was seasoned with until afterward. No one had any idea- they just loved the steak. The coffee mixed with the other seasonings just gives the steak a deep, earthy flavor or what I think of as "a man's steak." Really good. I didn't use the chili de arbol just because the rest of my family can't handle spicy stuff like I can. I used less chili powder than it said also. However, if I were making it just for myself, I'd put it all in just as the recipe says. Bottom line, its a great steak recipe & I like the fact that I didn't have to fire up the grill to eat a great steak! item not reviewed by moderator and published
When I make it for company they always say "this is the best meat I have ever had". It is wonderful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We used the gas grill to sear the meat. It was the best steak we have ever eaten. Thanks much Bobby item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm a 12 month a year griller (even in NY) and this is one of my favorites. I keep the extra rub in a sealed container and make several meals from it. I use the grill rather than the oven and it works great. I did doctor it a bit by adding some cocoa powder to give it a little more of the tex-mex flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this a while ago, but the recipe does make A LOT. Anyone know how long this will last in the cupboard? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cook from the heart and never use recipes. I think this just might be a staple for me for the rest of my life. Easy, simple but the most delicious steak I've ever made. Thanks Bobby! p.s. It was so good I had to take a picture of it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
As a born and raised Louisianian, I must stay this blows the doors off the local Cajun style Blackening seasoning. The Espresso really adds a deeper flavor to the rub. I use this rub exclusivley for all my Fish and Beef. The only thing I did differently was add some red pepper to "Bam" kick it up a notch! Enjoy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This entire meal was delicious! My guests gushed over the meal and simply said WOW! The carmelized small onions are a must, they are incredible and worth the extra work! Great for presentation too! I will never have creamed spinach again, kale reigns supreme! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thanks Bobby for a great recipe. I had never cooked steak before. It was easy and tastes great. I had a blast cooking it with my family. I'll definitely be using this recipe again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm glad other folks had such good luck with this recipe, but my experience was poor. The rub quickly burned on the hot cast iron and filled my house with smoke -- the smoke of burned peppers which is NOT good to breathe. In the end I scraped the burned rub off and enjoyed the remains of my steak... item not reviewed by moderator and published
This rub had a great tex-mex flare to it, but I think we hoped for the flavor of the coffee to come through a little more. Next time, I think we'll tinker with the recipe a little. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband is a bit picky about his steaks. I used this recipe, and we both LOVED IT! He has gone overseas to work and has bragged about it to all the other guys. He says now that he CRAVES it. THANK YOU! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought the reciept was wonderful. The only suggestions that I would make is to decrease the thickness of the steak. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This has quickly become my familys favorite recipe. I keep the coffee rub in the pantry and use this all the time. I am spoiled how easy this is and quick to do. We have steaks now even when it rains and I cant go outside and grill........ item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was so easy and soooo delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great alternative to any "ordinary" steak dinner,it is very easy to make and it can be served with so many different sides. I varied the spiciness by altering the quantities of the ingredients to suit different tastes. Delicious item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a delicious alternative to the premade spices found at the grocery we've been using over and over. The extra rub went into an empty spice jar, but that didn't last long either! Great flavor, and the ingredients can be found in the ethnic section really cheap here (So Cal). Love the spice! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I always find Mr Flays recipes easy to use. this rub was even liked by my father who is not a " beef " fan. The coffee flavor comes through but is not over powering. Prep was easy so it can be made after working all day. item not reviewed by moderator and published

The recipe makes you make WAY too much rub but other than that, it is really nice. The coffee adds a nice flavor. I made this for a celebratory dinner and everyone loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best steaks we've ever had. Searing and the oven thing are the keys to getting the juiciest steaks possible. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe. It was easy to find Bobby's ethnic ingredients at Whole Foods- all the chiles etc ! Made it on a grill pan indoors and it was wonderful. http://sherribraude.blogspot.com item not reviewed by moderator and published
I detest coffee. I hate the aroma of it brewing as much as I hate the horrible taste, but I was encouraged to try this recipie by my husband who loves coffee enough for the both of us. I must admit.. I loved the flavor it gave the meat. It was great! This is a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I consider this rub a staple in my house. It adds a wonderful flavor to any cut and a beautiful caramel coloring. I have used it on NY, TriTip, and Porterhouse so far. I love to serve it and follow up with a Chocolate cake flavored lightly with coffee, then drizzled with melted chocolate and chocolate shavings. item not reviewed by moderator and published
must try item not reviewed by moderator and published
My rating is all based on the only Spanish Paprika I can find... it is Smoked and the smokey flavor overpowered all the other spices in the rub. Lots of left-over rub made of expensive spices and I won't use it again because of the Smoke flavor. Did anyone find a non-smoked Spanish Paprika? item not reviewed by moderator and published

Really good. I put the coffee rub on both sides and it was great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My wife and I had our first grandchild today. The previous week we saw Bobby create this coffee rub for his 2" ribeye. To celebrate the addition to our family we tried this Coffee Rubbed Ribeye. At first I was skeptical about the coffee. We had some espresso grounds, so we pulverized them in a spice grinder. 4 minutes on the coffee side was perfect. My only regret with this recipe is that we did not rub the steak on BOTH sides! This steak is suburb! Give this a try...YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPPOINTED. item not reviewed by moderator and published
