Each month, Food Network Magazine puts chefs from Food Network Kitchens to the test: Create three recipes that put a new spin on a pantry staple like mixed nuts or hummus.

Instant coffee makes for a great cup of Joe, but it's even better when added to both sweet and savory dishes. This month, Leah Brickley, Andrea Albin and Bob Hoebee infuse this morning must-have into a steak-rub, a classic breakfast and dessert.

Leah says: "The onions are the best part of this dish! The coffee rub helps give them that nice golden glaze."
