Chocolate-Chili Steak

I've used a similar rub for prime rib, but for some reason it never occurred to me to try it on steak. Great result, although the steak should have been a little thicker. I served frozen spinach cooked in the same pan, seasoned with salt, pepper, and a touch of garlic powder.

1 tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp chili powder
salt and pepper
olive oil
1 inch steak, cut of choice (I used rib-eye)

Let meat rest out of the fridge for about 10 minutes to remove the chill.

Heat a medium pan to screaming hot, coat with olive oil and look for slight smoke.

Rub steak on both sides with seasoning.

Cook steak for 4 minutes on each side for medium. Remove from pan.

Let rest for 5 minutes before cutting to allow the juices to settle.
