If you are looking for an easy, delicious and manly marinade for your steak then look no further. I made this for my husband over the weekend and he LOVED it. Regardless if you are a coffee fanatic or not you will fall in love with this easy grilling recipe. I think this is the the perfect grilling marinade for Father's Day!
If you are a coffee fanatic you will love it and if not it does not have an over bearing coffee taste. It is really just the perfect amount of flavoring. The marinade almost caramelizes as it grills and in the end it is out of this world amazing and filled with a delicious and juicy taste.
All you need is 1 cup of coffee so a Kcup was the perfect portion! I used my Keurig machine and brew up my coffee. I used the flavor Dark Magic which really gave this marinade the flavor that it needed. We love dark roast coffee at our house. The Dark Magic Coffee that I used in this recipe is really rich and smooth too! You may want to brew two cups and enjoy one while the steak marinades. I allowed mine to marinade for four hours. It is a great fix it and forget it meal on a busy summer day.
