Ingredients

2 tablespoons coffee grounds (from brewed coffee)

1 tablespoon black peppercorns 

2 New York strip steaks 

Kosher salt 

1 tablespoon vegetable oil 

Directions

Make sure the coffee grounds are dried out. If they are still damp, spread them on a baking sheet and place in a 350-degree-F oven until just dry, 6 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Place the coffee grounds and peppercorns in a spice grinder and grind until the pepper is coarse. Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel and sprinkle liberally with salt. Sprinkle generously with the rub, making sure to coat the steaks well. Press the rub into the steaks.

Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat until hot and add the oil. Add the steaks and cook until a nice crust forms and the steaks are cooked to your liking, about 4 minutes per side for medium rare.
