Coffee-and-Pepper-Crusted New York Steaks Recipe
In this unusual recipe, the piquancy of peppercorns meets the mellowness of
coffee beans with stellar results. Turn the steaks when you see beads of juice
on the surface.
2 tablespoons whole coffee beans
2 tablespoons whole black peppercorns
4 New York strip steaks, each about 3/4 pound and 1" thick
Vegetable oil spray for spraying steak
Coarsely grind the coffee beans and peppercorns in a food processor or coffee
grinder. Press the mixture evenly on both sides of the steaks.
Spray steaks lightly with oil then grill the steaks over Direct High heat for 8
to 10 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time, or until desired
Remove the steaks from the grill. Season both sides with salt. Allow to rest for
2 to 3 minutes before serving.
Makes 4 servings.
