Coffee Rub

  • 1/4 cup dark coffee dry grounds
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp dry mustard powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp cane or coconut sugar
  • 23 6 oz steak filets
  • 4 tbsp Grass-fed butter for cooking


  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup prepared horseradish
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce


  1. Preheat oven to broil. 
  2. Before starting on the steak, combine the horseradish ingredients in a small bowl, stirring to combine, and place in the refrigerator until time to serve.
  3. In a small bowl, add the coffee rub dry ingredients and mix to combine. Heavily coat all sides of each fillet with the dry rub. 
  4. Preheat your cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter to skillet and let melt. Place the steak fillets into the heated skillet and cook until a crust has formed on each side, about 1 minute per side. 
  5. Place the entire skillet into the preheated oven and cook until they reach the desired doneness, about 4-5 minutes for medium-rare. Using tongs, flip the steaks about half-way through. Remove from oven and let rest for 3-5 minutes. 
  6. Cut each fillet into small bite-sized chunks. Add serving toothpicks to each bite, then serve with the homemade horseradish.
