Coffee Rubbed Hanger Steak with Chimichurri

Recipe courtesy of Chef/Owner Tommy Klauber & Pattigeorge’s Restaurant.

Serves: 4


Coffee Rub:

1/4 cup ancho chili powder

1/4 cup finely ground espresso

2 tablespoons Spanish paprika

2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

1 tablespoon dry mustard

1 tablespoon kosher salt

1 tablespoon ground black pepper

1 tablespoon ground coriander

1 tablespoon dried oregano

2 teaspoons ground ginger

2 teaspoons chili de arbol powder

2 Hanger Steak

Canola or olive oil

Salt and coarsely ground black pepper


Combine all spices in a bowl.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Preheat a cast iron pan over high heat. Brush each side of the steak with oil and then season each side liberally with salt and pepper. Rub 2 tablespoons of the coffee rub onto 1 side of each steak. Cook the steak, rub side down until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the steak over, cook for 2 minutes and then transfer to a baking sheet and cook in the oven to medium-rare doneness, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.

Chimichurri Sauce


1/2 cup olive oil

1 1/2 cups red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons hot paprika or 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 bunch fresh parsley leaves, minced

1 teaspoon crushed black peppercorns

2 teaspoons dried oregano

2 bay leaves, crumbled

1 teaspoon salt


In a large jar, combine the oil, vinegar, paprika, garlic, parsley, peppercorns, oregano, bay leaves, and salt. Cover the bottle and shake well to mix the ingredients. Refrigerate chimichurri until ready to use. Moisten the cooked meats in each course with a little of the sauce and serve the remaining sauce in a sauceboat at the table.

Makes about 2 1/2 cups sauce.



Pattigeorge’s has been a personal and Sarasota area favorite on the bay on north Longboat Key for locals and visitors for years. Patrons can “dock and dine,” arrive by boat, and sit overlooking the bay, while enjoying excellent global cuisine and watching the dolphins and manatees! When in Lakewood Ranch, some 20 minutes northeast of downtown Sarasota, be sure to visit sister restaurant, Polo Grill and Bar, also a Golden Palate Partner® located in the shops at Main Street in Lakewood Ranch, a comfortable, friendly locals favorite.
