My dad-a big steak lover—got this recipe form a friend, and now we never eat steak without using this marinade. It makes the meat so juicy and adds a great flavor.

MY REVIEW

I made this recipe the 1st time 3 years ago when it came out in a Picnic and Potluck special edition. Love it. It has become the family favorite now and we always have requests for it. We've even had it for christmas dinner with Lobster. We use a Flat Iron steak and slice after cooking. If there are leftovers we have the next day with sauteed onions and green peppers on a sub roll with melted provolone cheese. Love it that way also.

This was a really easy marinade to make and the steak was very flavorful. I tasted mostly the soy sauce and not so much the coffee. The steak was juicy and really infused with flavor.
