Coffee-Rubbed Strip Steaks

Yield Makes 4 servings


  • 2 (1-pound) beef strip steaks, trimmed and halved
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground MILLSTONE Kona Blend Coffee
  • 1 tablespoon cracked pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1 cup brewed MILLSTONE Kona Blend Coffee
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • Chopped fresh parsley (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Sprinkle both sides of steaks evenly with salt, and let stand 10 minutes.

  2. Combine ground coffee and cracked pepper; rub both sides of steaks with coffee mixture.

  3. Cook steaks in hot oil in a large nonstick ovenproof skillet over high heat 2 minutes or until well browned. Remove skillet from heat, and turn steaks.

  4. Bake steaks in skillet, browned sides up, at 350° for 5 minutes or to desired degree of doneness. Remove steaks from skillet, and keep warm.

  5. Sauté onion in skillet 2 minutes or until tender. Remove skillet from heat; stir in bourbon, and let stand 30 seconds. Return skillet to heat, and cook, stirring often, until liquid almost evaporates. Add brewed coffee, and cook, stirring often, over medium heat, 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Remove skillet from heat, and stir in butter until melted. Pour sauce over steaks; sprinkle with parsley, if desired, and serve immediately.
