Coffee Marinated Steak Recipe

Coffee Marinated Steak Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 pounds beef top sirloin steak (1 inch thick)

Directions

  • 1. In a small skillet, toast sesame seeds in butter. Add onion and garlic; saute until tender. In a large bowl, combine the coffee, soy sauce, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and sesame seed mixture.
  • 2. Pour half into a large resealable plastic bag; add steak. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  • 3. Drain and discard marinade from steak. Grill steak, covered, over medium-hot heat for 6-10 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Warm reserved marinade; serve with steak. Yield: 6 servings.
