Coffee Crusted Steak

I have not been blogging lately - sorry to my 11 followers - I know this makes you sad :)  BUT, I am making it up to you by giving you a yummy, yummy steak recipe. I serve this along side a salad, grilled onions and mashed 'taters. 

Coffee Crusted Steak

The Stuff:
Round Steak
Olive Oil
Garlic powder
1/8 cup brown sugar
Salt & pepper
1 small onion sliced
Salad, which ever kind floats your boat
Dressing (this is what I use): 
  • Juice from 1 meyer lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small shallot
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Small drizzle of honey or agave nectar
  • Mix ingredients, pour over salad

The How To:
  • Take the steak and trim off fat
  • Rub with salt, pepper, coffee, garlic powder and brown sugar
Big piece of meat!
  • And really I mean coffee! It adds a nice taste and when its cooking it smells so good! Set steak aside and let it marinate for a bit
  • Meanwhile, heat a big pan on medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of oil
  • Once hot, add onions and cook until caramel colored - they will be so, so sweet and delish!
  • Remove onions and set aside
  • In same pan add 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Once hot, turn heat to medium low and add steak 
  • Cook on each side for about 7 minutes for medium rare
  • Take out steak and put on a cutting board to rest for 10 min
  • While steak is resting make a salad, I just did a simple avocado, tomato and mixed greens then added dressing
  • Slice meat against the grain in 1/4 inch pieces, place in center of salad plate
  • Dish up with grilled onions and side of mash potatoes, the potatoes aren't totally necessary but I am a meat and potatoes kinda gal :)
Weight Watcher Friends: 3oz meat 3p+ (this is with ALL fat trimmed), track your points for the type salad you make
