A Nice Steak Rub

Mix together salt, black pepper, white pepper, coffee, and habanero pepper.  Rub on steak (strip steak, tenderloin, etc.) and sear quickly on each side in a hot cast iron grill pan.  Once grill marks have been hatched into each side, turn off heat and cover pan.  Let sit 2-3 minutes.  Flip steak, recover and let sit an additional 2-3 minutes.  Serve medium rare.

    We used your steak rub on a couple grass fed beef strip steaks for dinner tonight. I didn’t have any habanero pepper so I substituted chipotle and anchoi chili. It was very good. Thanks for the suggestion. We grilled ours over charcoal and accompanied them with grilled potatoes and grilled sweet onion slices. I parboiled the potatoes and then coated them with butter and a mixture of paprika, and homemade cajun spices. I sliced the sweet onion into thick slices, seasoned the slices with salt and pepper, and drizzled olive oil over each side. The potatoes and onions are a great addition to grilled steaks and easy to prepare over the fire when cooking the meat.
