Coffee-Crusted Ribeye Steak

Coffee-Crusted Ribeye Steak

Here are three delicious steak recipes, each with a unique flavor profile and cooking method:

1. **Coffee-Crusted Ribeye Steak**:

**Ingredients**:
- 2 boneless ribeye steaks (1 to 1.5 inches thick)
- 2 tablespoons finely ground coffee beans
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil

**Instructions**:

1. In a small bowl, combine the finely ground coffee beans, brown sugar, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper to create the coffee rub.
2. Rub the coffee mixture evenly over both sides of each steak.
3. Cover the steaks and let them sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
4. Preheat your grill to high heat (about 450-500°F or 230-260°C) and brush the grates with olive oil to prevent sticking.
5. Place the steaks on the grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare (adjust cooking time for your preferred doneness).
6. Remove the steaks from the grill and let them rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute, keeping the steaks juicy.

2. **Whiskey-Glazed Strip Steak**:

**Ingredients**:
- 2 New York strip steaks (1 to 1.5 inches thick)
- 1/4 cup whiskey (bourbon or your choice)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- Salt and black pepper to taste

**Instructions**:

1. In a small saucepan, combine the whiskey, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper. Heat over medium heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Simmer for 5-7 minutes until the sauce thickens slightly.
2. Season the strip steaks with salt and black pepper.
3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (around 400-450°F or 200-230°C).
4. Grill the steaks for about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare.
5. Brush the whiskey glaze onto the steaks during the last 2 minutes of cooking, turning them once or twice to create a caramelized coating.
6. Remove the steaks from the grill, let them rest for a few minutes, then slice and serve with any remaining glaze drizzled on top.

3. **Chimichurri Marinated Flank Steak**:

**Ingredients**:

- 1 flank steak (about 1.5 pounds)
- 1 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
- Salt and black pepper to taste

**Instructions**:

1. In a blender or food processor, combine the chopped parsley, cilantro, minced garlic, red wine vinegar, olive oil, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper. Blend until you have a smooth chimichurri sauce.
2. Place the flank steak in a resealable plastic bag or shallow dish and pour half of the chimichurri sauce over it. Seal or cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best flavor.
3. Preheat your grill to high heat (around 450-500°F or 230-260°C).
4. Remove the flank steak from the marinade and grill for about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare.
5. Let the steak rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing it thinly against the grain.
6. Serve the sliced steak with the remaining chimichurri sauce drizzled on top.
These three steak recipes offer a variety of flavors and techniques to suit your preferences. Enjoy!
