12 Days of Christmas Recipes: #4 Steak Rub

On the 4th Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...Steak Rub


This is going to sound crazy but ... do it anyway.

  • 2 Tbl fresh ground coffee (decaf if you're sensitive)
  • 1 Tbl cocoa
  • 1 Tbl brown sugar
  • 1 Tbl Kosher salt
  • 1/2 Tbl pepper

4 New York Strips


Mix together and generously sprinkle/ rub into the steaks.

Rest 30 min. (the steaks and you, preferrably with the back of your hand resting on your forehead)


I did med low heat for 5 minutes on 1 side 4 on the other for a med (slight pink center) Adjust for pinker or more well done.


I heard this one listening to the Martha Stewart satellite radio station. She was interviewing a chef from Louisville. So we know it must be good.  He is an expert...from "out of town".  It is as good as any restaurant.

...and a partridge in a pear tree!
