1 Flat Iron Steak
1 Tbsp Worchstershire Sauce
2 Tbsp Dickey's Salted Coffee Rub
Salted Butter, As Needed
Pat steak dry with a paper towel.
Rub the entire steak with the Worcestershire sauce until evenly coated.
Sprinkle the Dickey’s Salted Coffee Rub evenly on both sides of the steak. The seasoning should form a even crust. Allow the steak to rest in the refrigerator while you prepare the grill. Being a thin steak no need to allow it to warm to room temperature.
Prepare grill with charcoal or Competition Blend Pellets. Heat grill to 500°F.
Place the flat iron steak on the grates and cook for 4-5 minutes on one side. Do not move the steak as the salted coffee crust can easily come off if moved.
Flip the steak over and continue to cook to desired temperature. Brush the steak on both sides with melted butter, as desired, and remove from the grill, let rest for 4-5 minutes.
Crosscut the steak into 1/4″ slices on a bias. Arrange steak on platter and serve.
