Door County Maple Coffee-Crusted Steak

Inspired by the gourmet ground coffee I received from event sponsor Door County Coffee*, I decided to use their Door County Maple in a coffee rub for steak. Oh, my goodness! This was delicious...and so, so simple. I also did a little bit of reading about the company and was tickled to discover that they are a small, family-owned business in the heart of Door County (that's in Wisconsin, if you were going to head to an atlas like I had to!). They roast coffee in small batches which lends to consistency and quality. Gotta love that!

Ingredients serves 4

Coffee Rub
  • 3 T ground coffee (I used Door County's Door County Maple)
  • 2 T salt
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 t smoked paprika
  • 1 t white pepper
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • 1/2 t ground coriander
  • 1/2 t ground cardamom

Steak
  • two steaks (I used New York Strip Steak), approximately 2 pounds total
  • oil
Procedure

Coffee Rub
Blend everything together in a bowl. 


Steak
Pat steaks dry and sprinkle both sides liberally with coffee rub. Rub as much as you need to coat all surfaces of your grillable meat. Let stand for at least 30 minutes before grilling.


Prepare plancha grill for cooking over direct heat. Grill steaks on lightly oiled grill. Cook approximately 7 or 8 minutes total for medium-rare, so 4 minutes on each side.


Transfer steaks to a cutting board and let stand, tented loosely with foil, for 5 to 10 minutes. Thinly slice steaks diagonally and serve.


While the steaks were resting, I tossed some quartered onions on the plancha and ended up with an unexpected treat.


I served this with some sweet potato fries that I'll be sharing later in the week and a tossed green salad.


Dinner is served!

Sometimes when I make this rub, the coffee is actually bitter. Because this has the added sweetness of maple, it was absolutely perfect. I can't wait to have this on our table again soon.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
