Cowboy Flank Steak

Cowboy Flank Steak Recipe
Oxmoor House
Instant coffee granules may seem like an odd ingredient to use in a meat rub, but we found that it actually deepens the flavor. The coffee also helps caramelize the steak's surface, sealing in its natural juices and creating a tastier, more tender bite.
