One hour before cooking, remove steaks from refrigerator and let sit, covered at room temperature.

Preheat oven to 350*F. When ready to cook, rub each side of steak with about 1 tablespoon Chile Pepper Coffee Rub.

Use a heavy-bottomed skillet such as cast iron with plenty of room so steaks are not crowded. Heat skillet over medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil, when hot, add steaks to pan. Sear the steak for about 2 minutes on each side. Move steaks in pan to the oven and bake for 4 minutes or until cooked to desired doneness**

Transfer cooked steaks to a cutting board and let rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.
