This is a fabulous and savory rub for steak. It's a great idea to keep instant espresso on hand - you can use it in a lot of recipes. (You could use instant coffee granules in this recipe, but the flavor will be much milder.) You could also use a cup of liquid espresso, but you would need to reduce it by about half. Put the espresso in a small pan over medium-high heat and simmer until reduced. Let cool and add the spices and oil.
Strong coffee works great in dessert recipes that call for chocolate, helping to enhance the flavor of the chocolate. Use double the amount of coffee grounds to make the coffee. In a pinch using instant coffee granules will work. Use an equal amounts of the best quality instant coffee granules and hot water.

|1 Tbsp||instant espresso powder|
|2 tsp||olive oil|
|1 tsp||ground cumin|
|1 tsp||dried oregano|
|fresh ground black pepper (to taste)|
|8 ounces||flank steak|
|1/4 cup||white wine|
|2 tsp||unsalted butter|
Combine the espresso powder, olive oil, cumin, paprika, oregano salt and pepper. Rub the mixture on the flank steak filets. Place the filets on a plate and cover with plastic wrap. Put in the refrigerator and let rest for at least an hour (overnight is best).
When you're ready to cook, place a large skillet in the oven. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
When the oven is hot, spray the pan with oil and add the steak. Cook for about 8 minutes and turn. Cook for another 7 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven. Place the steak on a cutting board to rest.
Place the skillet over medium-high heat and add the wine. Deglaze the pan by mixing the wine into the drippings and juice from the steak and reduce the mixture by about 1/2.
Add the butter and whisk until the sauce is smooth. Serve over the steak.
