Rib eye steaks turn into a gourmet treat when rubbed with this coffee, coriander, paprika, oregano and dry mustard mixture. The rub is so easy, but has a unique and delicious combination of flavors. A great way to add lots of flavor to your steak, get ready to savor every bite!

  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander (ground)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

1. In a small bowl, combine all the spices (except oil).
2. Rub steaks with the mixture on all sides. Let them sit at room temperature for 20-30 minutes.

3. Preheat oven to 400F (200C).
4. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add steaks and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, until a nice crust is formed.

5. Transfer steaks to the oven and cook another 6-8 minutes (make sure your skillet is oven proof). To cook to medium, aim for internal temperature of 145 F (63 C).
6. Let rest for 10 minutes.
