Sure, everyone drinks a cup of coffee in the morning
This post was created through our friendship with Comfort Kitchen RSVP. Thanks to their amazing members who have a passion for food and the art of cooking, and sometimes combine that with coffee!
And there are plenty of different ways to prepare that cup, from espresso-based drinks to Turkish coffee to a French Press. However, not enough people out there embrace how truly dynamic coffee can be, not just as a drink, but as an important ingredient in the kitchen, for preparing everything from appetizers to salad dressings to meaty main courses.
For example, all over the world, people pay full buckets of cash for expert chefs to prepare them an elegant steak feast. But if you want to make one of these amazing steak dinners at home, you can save a lot of money, just by adding one important, unconventional ingredient: that’s right, coffee. And any of the Café Joe coffee products we offer on this site are capable of assisting in the creation of some truly one of a kind meals.
Though you’ve probably never had them at the same time before, the truth is that coffee and steak go together like a fireplace on a snowy day, or a piña colada on a beautiful beach. However, don’t just take our word for it. Read below, and follow the directions to prepare your own mesmerizing, dynamic, coffee steak. Share it with some loved one, a partner, a group of friends, or anyone you feel like. When it comes to portions, keep in mind that the recipe below yields six servings, so you’ll impress a handful of eaters! If you’re interested, keep reading, and may the coffee cooking revolution continue.
Recipe for Coffee Steak
This recipe yields 6 servings. Preparation time requires eight hours, or you can leave steaks overnight and return in the morning if that works better for your schedule. Cook time is about half an hour. Serve with vegetables, starches, or whatever you like.
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
6 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup strong brewed coffee (Cafe Joe's Extra, Ultra, and Cuban all work well)
1 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 pounds beef top sirloin steak (1 inch thick)
- In a small skillet, toast sesame seeds in butter. Add onion and garlic; saute until tender.
- In a large bowl, combine the coffee, soy sauce, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and sesame seed mixture. Pour half into a large resealable plastic bag; add steak. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
- Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade. Drain and discard marinade from steak.
- Grill steak, covered, over medium-hot heat for 6-10 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Warm reserved marinade; serve with steak.
Bon Appetit! Enjoy your coffee-enhanced steak, and we hope that make it one of your regular recipes!
