  • 1 pound beef steak, about 1″ thick (ribeye is my preference)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coffee or instant coffee powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Jalapeño butter
  • lime wedges for serving


  1. Combine dry seasonings and rub into steak on both sides.
  2. Heat a heavy skillet over high heat. Add steak. Reduce heat to medium. Cook 8 minutes. Turn. Cook an additional 6-9 minutes depending on preference. Remove from skillet and let rest on cutting board for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Serve topped with jalapeño butter and a squeeze of lime juice.
