  • 2 tbsp ground coffee beans
  • 1 tsp Cacao powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp smoked sweet paprika
  • 2 tbsp Ancho Chili powder
  • 1 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 16- ounce hanger steak
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil


  • Mix spices in a small bowl.
  • Season steaks with spice mix. Place on a wire rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet and chill uncovered 3 hours.
  • Let steaks sit 1 hour to come to room temperature, which will help them cook quickly and more evenly.
  • Preheat oven to 400°. Heat oil in a large skillet over hot-high heat. Cook steaks 2 minutes or so on each side to create a nice crust. Transfer skillet to oven; cook steaks until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 120° for medium-rare, about 5 minutes. Transfer steaks to a cutting board; let rest 10 minutes. Slice against the grain into ½ inch thick slices


Recipe works for ribeyes as well All pan sear cooking works fine too. Simple sear 3 minutes per side in pan over high heat.
