My two favorite things about July 4th is watching the fireworks and grilling out in the backyard. Last year, I wrote about my favorite coffee burgers. This year, it’s a new coffee steak recipe that I perfected last weekend. I hope you like it, done right the steak has a woody flavor with just a hint of coffee. The best part is that it doesn’t require that much work so it won’t cut into your fireworks time.
Serves: 4 People
Prep Time: Five Minutes
- 1/2 cup dark roast medium or finely ground coffee beans
- 1/4 cup salt
- 1/4 cup black pepper
- 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
- vegetable oil
- 4 of your favorite cuts of steak for grilling
First make the dry rub, by pouring the brown sugar, ground coffee, salt and pepper into a medium sized bowl. One big enough for the rub ingredients and a steak. Mix gently with a spoon until even.
Coat a steak with vegetable oil, then put it into the bowl with the coffee rub. Coat the steak evenly with the coffee rub.
Repeat the process until all of the steaks are coated with the coffee rub.
Grill based on the cut of the meat and your personal preferences. I suggest grilling it until it’s medium-rare.
Enjoy with a cold beer.
That’s my recipe, what’s your coffee influenced recipe that you’re going to be grilling up this weekend?
