Coffee Rubbed Strip Steak


When most people think of cooking in the summer they think of grilling, but you don’t need a grill to make great steaks.  With just a simple frying pan you can achieve a great crust just like you would from a grill, and who doesn’t have a frying pan?  Just add a burst of flavor like this coffee rub to add some great flavor and the rest is simple, 3 minutes per side and a little rest before slicing.  Sound easy?  It is.
