We Texans are mighty serious about our steaks. We like ‘em big and well-marbled – and grilled, not broiled. We concocted this recipe which uses one of our favorite grilling sauces, Orange Chipotle Grilling Glaze, a flavor match made in heaven with steaks, and a unique rub made from ground espresso coffee beans! Now this is our “secret formula” so enjoy it, but guard it with your life – and let it be your own “house secret recipe”. You’ll find it to be the perfect seasoning for those big ol’ ribeyes.


Serves 4.

4 (10-12 ounce) aged ribeye steaks
Fredericksburg Farms Orange Chipotle Grilling Glaze
Coffee rub, see recipe below
Olive oil

Coffee Rub:

⅓ cup espresso coffee beans, ground fine
1½ tablespoons kosher salt
2½ teaspoons ancho chili powder
1½teaspoons medium-grind black pepper
1½ teaspoons toasted, then ground coriander seeds
1½ teaspoons granulated garlic
⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon


Preheat gas grill or build a hardwood charcoal fire and let the coals burn down to the point where they are glowing red, covered by a thick layer of white ash.

Combine all ingredients for the Coffee Rub in a medium bowl, tossing to blend well. Add just enough olive oil to make a spreadable paste. Spread some of the paste rub over both sides of each steak, coating well. Grill steaks to desired degree of doneness. Immediately remove steaks to a baking dish and pour a liberal amount of Orange Chipotle Grilling Glaze over them. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and set aside for 5 minutes. Remove steaks and serve hot, basting them once again with the drippings from the baking dish. Dig in!
