Espresso-rubbed Steak

Ok, let's state the obvious, I am seriously terrible at taking pictures!  I don't know why I have such a hard time getting a decent picture of steak, but this is the best I could come up with.  Sorry.  I promise this recipe is awesome - another winner from our favorite grilling cookbooks by Weber!!  And super easy!  

Espresso-rubbed Steak
1 t. cumin
2 T. dark-roast coffee
1 T. ground ancho chile pepper
1 t. paprika
1 t. salt
1 t. black pepper
4 rib-eye steaks, each about 8 oz
olive oil
-Mix all dry ingredients in small bowl.
-Lightly brush oil onto steaks and season evenly with rub, pressing rub into meat.  Cover and let stand at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before grilling.
-Prepare grill for direct cooking over high heat.
-Grill steaks over high heat with the lid closed as much as possible, until cooked to your desired doneness, 6-8 minutes for medium rare, turning once.  Remove from grill and let rest for 3-5 minutes.  Serve!  :)
