Tried It - Coffee Crusted Steak - Liked It

I tried the coffee crusted strip loin steak recently posted, and I must say it tasted pretty good.[p]I ground 2 tsp. of coffee beans with 2 tsp. of black pepper corns then applied to the 2 steaks after a light dusting of salt. Cooked at 450 degrees for 5 minutes per side direct, 5 minutes indirect, 5 minute rest covered with foil on a plate. Ended up with a medium well done steak. [p]With the coffee crust, the steak looked like it was charred almost Chicago Style.[p]With the side dishes these two 1-inch steaks fed 5 people. Nobody had any idea there was coffee on them.[p]Has anyone else tried yet?[p]RayS

    What kind of flavor did it impart?

    1044,[p]The flavor was hard to explain. I could taste the coffee with the spice of the pepper. Everyone else couldn't tell what was on the steak, but they really enjoyed it.[p]RayS

    RayS,[p]I used equal parts of pulverized (Greek) coffee, ground pepper, turbinado and salt. Put it on pork steak, and it was great! Stepdaughter didn't recognize the coffee; thought it was cocoa.[p]Ken

    For me, it imparts kind of a roasted malt flavor....sorta like you might taste in a stout, or a porter. Like Ken says, it can have a cocoa-like flavor as well.[p]Cheers!

    Nature Boy,[p]I think a lot of it comes down to the coffee you use. I'm going to try regrinding French Market (coffee and chickory) to more nearly expresso grind next time.[p]Ken
