Spiced Mocha Steak Rub

By Deen Brothers


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 5 min

Cook time: 10 min

Servings: 4


  • 2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 2-pound boneless sirloin steak


Combine the brown sugar, chipotle chili powder, espresso powder, oil, salt, and cocoa powder in a small bowl until blended. Rub the spice mixture on both sides of the steak.

Spray a grill rack with nonstick spray and preheat the grill to medium-high. Add the steak to the grill to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer the steak to a cutting board. Let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
