Coffee Rubbed Steak
My lovely dinner last night. I saw these awesome little eye-round steaks at Publix that were about 6 oz (can’t handle much more) and decided to cook them up with some caprese Roma tomatoes and some asparagus.
For the steak rub I used (3 servings):
1 tbsp Instant Coffee Grounds
1 tsp Red Chili Flakes
1 tsp McCormick’s Steakhouse Maple
1 tsp Brown Sugar
Dash of S and P
I put all of these ingredients in my bullet and got them to a nice grounded texture. Then I rubbed both sides of the steak.
I put the oven on Broil “Low” and let them sit for about 5-7 minutes.
For the caprese Roma Tomatoes (each):
1 half Roma tomatoes
1 oz of part-skim mozzarella
1 tsp basil paste or pesto
For the asparagus:
1 tsp EVOO
dash of S and P
When the oven was ready, I added the steak, the tomatoes and the asparagus to the pan for about 8 minutes (or until the asparagus was bright green and the tomatoes had a wilted look to them). The steak was a little more rare than I liked (about medium-rare) when I took it out so I added it back to the broil for about 4 minutes.
All-in-all it was a good meal that didn’t make me feel “stuffed” but relatively full.
