Coffee-Marinated Steak

Steak and coffee are a delicious combination...especially when that steak is marinated in the coffee. It's a perfect pairing

Sometimes a recipe with only three steps is not a terrible thing and it certainly doesn't mean you're taking the easy route out, either. This steak has so much depth of flavour and is absolutely incredible.
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 shallot
  • 1⁄4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1⁄4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 cup strongly brewed coffee
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 steaks, good cut ~ 3⁄4 pound/0.34 kg each
  • 1⁄2 tablespoon kosher salt
  1. Roast garlic and shallot in 375 F oven, wrapped in foil and drizzled with olive oil, for about 35 minutes (you'll know when it's done it smells divine).

  2. Squeeze garlic from skin (it will be very soft) and remove skin from shallot and chop finely—put into glass bowl. Add all other ingredients except salt and steak. Mix to combine and pour into a zip-lock bag. Add the steaks and marinate for 4 to 5 hours or longer in the refrigerator.

  3. Sprinkle with salt (as much as you want) and grill to your taste (I prefer med-rare to rare). Serve and enjoy.
