Probably there's nothing wrong with the recipe if you like coffee and steak together, but this was a total bust for me. I am a coffee and a steak lover, but apparently I prefer those two loves completely separate. I found the coffee flavor to be very overpowering, and it did not compliment that steak very well, and I used a good quality coffee on a decent cut of meat. Though I wouldn't make this again, if you're going to try it, go easy on the coffee rub part to start. otherwise, it really takes over.
