4 tablespoons cacao Nibs
Combine all ingredients except the steaks in the bowl of a food processor, spice grinder, or mortar and pestle. Grind until the nibs break into particles the size of large grains of sand. The rub can be stored in a tightly covered jar for up to 1 month.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Rinse and pat the steaks dry with paper towels. Generously coat each with the rub on both sides and wrap in foil or plastic wrap. Put them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. The steaks can sit overnight in the refrigerator. When ready to cook, remove the steaks from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature.
