Coffee With Your Steak?

Okay, so yesterday (September 29th) was National Coffee Day. Who knew?

Well, some people knew. But I didn’t.

Until today. But there’s no reason we can’t celebrate today, right?

So in honor of National Coffee Day, I give you this recipe for Black Pepper Coffee Strip Steak. Or this one for Coffee Crusted Steak from Kevin and Amanda. Looks so tasty!

They’re mmm, mmmm good. The great thing is you don’t even have to like coffee to like these recipes. The flavor is not overly pungent, just enough to give it some interest.


So go enjoy a coffee-flavored steak. There’s always a reason to celebrate with steak, I tell you!

Have a java good time!

Fennel-Rubbed Flank Steak With Grilled Oranges

Oh, tasty.

That citrusy flavor mixed with garlic, black pepper, fennel — and, of course — steak!

What a combo!

These gorgeous oranges not only provide amazing flavor and juiciness, but they’ll earn you an A+ for presentation.

Here’s what you’ll need for this outstanding recipe:


1 flank steak (about 2 pounds)

1 tbl fennel seeds

2 tbl black pepper

2 tsp salt

3 oranges

2 tbl olive oil

4 sprigs rosemary

4 cloves garlic

cayenne pepper to taste

This recipe says flank steak, but you know you can use skirt steak, too, right? It’ll just cook faster so be careful.

Click here for a video presentation that will show you all the steps to impress your guests with this one!
