Grilled Sirloin Steak with Coffee Crust

    grilled sirloin steak coffee crust

    Nothing beats a juicy steak. Sirloin is my favorite cut of beef but this recipe works well with anything from tenderloin to flank. By adding a bit of brown sugar to the spice rub, the steak caramelizes and forms a sinfully delicious crust. Need a few more reasons to make this recipe?
    Health Benefits of Beef:

    • Excellent source of zinc, vitamin B12, phosphorus and selenium
    • Fabulous source of protein (which helps rebuild muscle and supports a strong body)
    • Great source of iron, niacin, riboflavin and vitamin B6

    But really, it just tastes fantastic.

    Your fork is waiting.

    PREP: 20 mins
    COOK: 10 mins
    TOTAL: 30 mins
    Servings: 4

    Ingredients
     

    • 1 ½ lb sirloin steak
    • 2 tbs coffee beans (finely ground)
    • 2 tbs black peppercorns (freshly cracked)
    • ½ tbs salt
    • 1 tbs brown sugar
    • 1 tbs garlic powder
    • 1 tbs smoked paprika
    • ½ tbs cayenne

    Instructions
     

    • Pre-heat grill on high.
    • Combine coffee through cayenne in a small bowl to create spice rub.
    • Coat the sirloin evenly with the spice mixture and let sit for 20 minutes or so at room temperature. (Cold meat on a hot grill will shrink.)

    • Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing to allow juices to re-distribute.
