Coffee Crusted Steak
I cannot wait to share the incredible steak recipe with you guys! Goodness gracious, this was delicious. It starts with a simple, tried-and-true ribeye steak but it completely transforms into something purely magical with a simple coffee crust. It will totally send your tastebuds into overdrive!
You will love this steak if:
1. You don’t like coffee.
2. You don’t like black coffee.
3. You prefer your coffee with unmentionable amounts of cream and sugar.
4. You like the smell of coffee.
5. You do like coffee.
6. You seriously, really like coffee.
Now come on, let’s get started!
The ingredients are really simple. All you need is a little butter & olive oil, salt & pepper, your steaks and coffee. That’s it!
Pick out some well marbled, ribeye steaks and season both sides with salt, just as you normally would. I prefer kosher because of it’s flaky shape, it seems to stick to the meat better! :)
Fresh ground pepper too.
Now the coffee. I just grabbed some ground coffee off the shelf at the grocery store. Decaf for me, because I’m already high strung enough as it is. And hazelnut flavored because it’s absolutely delicious- with just a hint of sweetness.
Do try it with your favorite flavor and please report back!
Give the steaks a good sprinkling with the coffee. Don’t be afraid!
Next, find yourself a nice, heavy-bottomed skillet (one that would make Sir Mix-A-Lot proud) and begin heating over medium heat. Add the butter and olive oil, and heat until the butter is just browned.
Then add one of the steaks. Oh my heavens, this smells incredible right now!
Cook for 3 mins on the first side, then flip and check after another 3 mins. The steaks were pretty small (1/2 lb each) so they were definitely done after 3 mins on each side.
Let the first steak rest on a plate covered with foil while you cook the second steak. You’ll want to let them rest for a few mins before digging in anyway! :)
This delicious steak could not be easier. Just check out the simple recipe below. You’ll love it! And it’s so interesting and fun to make for guests. Just imagine the reaction you’ll get from Coffee Crusted Steak! :)
