Beef

Coffee Rubbed Porterhouse

The porterhouse is undoubtedly the king of steaks

On one side you have the beef tenderloin

On the other side you have a strip sirloin steak with a lovely bone keeping them all together

The bone helps add a lot of flavor to meat as it is cooking

When I think of bold beef flavor this steak is definitely what comes to mind

That being said, this steak can handle a very bold rub

Now if you have never tried beef with a coffee based rub your are missing out!

Let’s start with the steak

We have 2 beautiful porterhouse steaks that we had the butcher cut to about 2 inches thick

We are drizzling them with a little olive oil on both sides and rubbing it in

Next let’s work on the rub

We will need 3 tablespoons of espresso instant coffee, 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of onion powder, 1 teaspoon of paprika, 1 teaspoon of kosher salt and 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper

Place all of the ingredients in a bowl

Whisk to combine

Using a tablespoon, generously sprinkle the steaks with the rub

Using your fingers massage the rub into the steak

Flip and repeat

Then refrigerate at least an hour to allow the flavors to really penetrate the meat

Remove from the refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature before grilling (at least 30 minutes)

Heat your grill to at least 400-450 F

Even though I’m going to cook these over direct heat I’m going to put all of the burners to medium

Place the steaks down in the middle

Close the lid and cook for 4 minutes

Turn the steaks (not flip) and cook another 4 minutes

Then flip and cook 3 minutes

Turn the steaks 1 more time and cook for around 2 minutes for Medium or 130-140 F

Remove from the grill and let the steaks rest for at least 10-15 minutes

This will allow the meat to reabsorb its juices

Remove to a cutting board

Using a sharp knife remove the strip steak as well as the filet and trim away any excess fat

Next we just slice both sides and serve family style

In our house these steaks are big enough to serve 4

And everyone gets to have some of the filet and the strip!
