Coffee Rubbed Steak

Lyndey Milan’s coffee-rubbed steak with spiced brussels sprouts

Preparation time
15 mins + 3 hours marinating
Cooking time
8 min + 5-10 min resting


4 x 200g boneless New York strip steaks

(or 2 x 400g thick steaks)

¼ cup (60ml) extra virgin olive oil

Salt, to taste

300g brussels sprouts, trimmed, halved

80g lardons, or diced speck or pancetta

40g (¼ cup) pinenuts

1 birdseye chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, peeled, finely sliced

Freshly ground black pepper

Baby carrots, to serve (optional)


2/3 tbsp mild chilli powder (or to taste)

2/3 tbsp finely ground coffee beans

1/3 tbsp brown sugar

1/3 tbsp hot smoked Spanish paprika

½ tsp dried oregano

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper

½ tsp ground coriander

½ tsp mustard powder

½ tsp finely ground red pepper flakes

½ tsp ground ginger


1. For the rub: combine all ingredients in a small bowl.

2. Coat each steak on both sides using about 1 heaped tsp (or more to taste) of rub each side of the 4 steaks. Place on a wire rack inside a shallow baking dish and refrigerate, uncovered, for 3 hours if possible. Remove from fridge half an hour before cooking.

3. Heat 2 tbsp (40ml) oil in a very large frying pan over medium-high heat. Season steaks with salt on both sides and cook 2 minutes each side to crust, for rare. Reduce heat and cook a little longer on each side for medium. Remove to a warm place and cover loosely with foil and rest 5–10 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, place brussels sprouts in a saucepan of salted boiling water and cook until just tender. Add remaining oil to a frypan and cook the lardons and pinenuts over medium-high heat until lardons are crisp and pinenuts brown, add the chilli and garlic and cook for another minute. Add the drained brussels sprouts and cook, stirring, for another 2 minutes. Season with some salt and freshly ground black pepper.

5. Carve steak into 1cm slices and serve with any juices, brussels sprouts and baby carrots, if desired.

Lyndey’s note: if using 2 x 2.5cm thick steaks, cook 2 minutes or so on each side to crust. Cover frying pan handle to protect and put in a preheated 180°C oven for around 5 minutes for medium-rare. Remove to a warm place, cover loosely with foil and rest for a full 10 minutes. Cut into 1cm slices and serve.


A red with richness and intensity would be ideal with this spicy dish. Pour a glass of the 2017 Battle of Bosworth Puritan Shiraz – organic with no added preservatives, it’s a wine that’s all about texture and intensity of dark fruit. With its wonderfully deep and spicy tannins, it has the generosity of fruit to match perfectly with the steak.
