***This recipie comes from a series of mystery books I very much enjoy by Cleo Coyle that are based on a woman who owns a coffee house, you can check the books at the Coffee House Mystery Site.***
You will need -
Steaks for grilling (top round or flank are most economical)
Salt & Pepper
Worcestershire sauce (optional)
Scallions or shallots (optional)
Steak dry rub (optional)
If you want to tenderize the meat pound the steak out with the spike side of a meat hammer. Prick the meat with a fork to allow for the marinade to get into the meat and tenderize it further. Place your steaks in a glass or plastic container and pour enough cold coffee over them to cover. You can use any kind of coffee. Just save the last dregs of your coffee pot for a few days (store in fridge) and you should have enough for the marinade. Add a tablespoon of salt, a dash of pepper, and (optional) a couple of diced scallions or shallots along with a dash of Worcestershire sauce. Cover the container with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 1 to 3 hours. No longer. Pull the steaks out of the container and discard the liquid. Do not rinse. Just apply a favorite dry rub if desired. There are many dry steak rubs available in your grocery aisle. Cook your coffee-marinated steaks on a charcoal or gas grill, or broil the meat in the oven.
Serve with frozen vetetables, a tossed green salad and ice cream for dessert.
