Ingredients For Steak:

2 tbsp. espresso beans, finely ground
4 tbsp. Montreal Steak seasoning
3 tbsp. Sugar in the Raw
(4) 10 oz. ribeye steaks

Method of Preparation:

In a bowl, mix the ground espresso with the Montreal Steak seasoning and Sugar in the Raw. Rub ribeye steaks with this mixture. Cover and let sit for 1 hour.


For the best results, a charcoal grill will give you the desired bark on the outside of the ribeye steak. In any case, preheat your grill or oven to 475°F. If cooking on the stove, place a sauté pan over medium high heat. Add 2 tbsp of olive oil and allow to come to a light smoke point. Add the steaks, let sit in the pan for 2 minutes. After 2 minutes, turn over with tongs. Place in the oven and roast for 8-10 minutes. If using a grill, ensure the grates are clean and free of all debris. Brush the grill lightly with oil. Place the steaks on the grill. Cook on both sides for 4-5 minutes or until desired doneness. Remove from oven or the grill and allow meat to rest for 10-15 minutes.

1 head romaine hearts, sliced finely
1 (each) english cucumber, sliced finely
