Coffee Crusted Steak
This was my Mother's Day lunch.
I say "my" because we each had different stuff.
It was like being at a restaurant but it was at home.
It was so fun!
On Saturday, we went to one of our favorite grocery stores . . .
yes, we have a "favorite" grocery store!
We decided to have corn on the cob, a salad, and gluten-free cornbread.
Then, we headed to the meat market and we all picked out whatever kind of meat/fish/chicken we wanted to grill.
I picked a filet.
I never pick a filet.
But it just looked good!
It's amazing that fresh, red, uncooked meat can look good!
I asked for the smallest cut, because I'm not a steak eater.
At lunch, I was so sad I hadn't asked for a bigger steak.
It was perfection!
Matter of fact, it was the hit of the lunch table.
The Mr. and the cherubs were so envious of my creation!
I love being a mother!
1 favorite cut of steak
Fresh ground pepper
Coffee grounds (I used decaf, Texas pecan . . .my favorite)
In a shallow dish, I put about equal amounts of salt, pepper, and coffee. Stir to mix.
Using your hands, firmly press every inch of the steak into the seasoning mixture: top, bottom, and sides.
Place steak on the grill and cook to desired doneness. Turning as few times as possible.
Allow steak to rest before cutting.
