Coffee and Brown Sugar-Crusted Skirt Steak
1/4 c. finely ground espresso coffee (not instant)
1/4 c. dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
1/8 tsp. ground white pepper
1/8 tsp. five-spice powder
Pinch cayenne pepper
2 1/2 lb. skirt steak, cut into 4 pieces
1 tbsp. olive oil
Heat grill to high.
Combine coffee, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, white pepper, five-spice powder, and cayenne pepper in a bowl.
Remove steak from refrigerator and let come to room temperature, about 15 minutes. Rub steak with oil, and sprinkle with rub. Massage rub into meat.
Grill until charred and medium-rare, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board, cover with foil and let rest 5 minutes before thinly slicing at an angle. Serve immediately.
