WHAT YOU NEED
For the Chimichurri:
½ cup chopped parsley
4 cloves garlic - chopped
1 shallot - chopped
1 tsp. dried oregano
2 tsp. red pepper flakes
3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. fresh ground black pepper
⅔ cup good-quality extra-virgin olive oil
For the Steak:
4 ribeye steaks
2 Tbsp. Don Francisco's Espresso Find Grind or any Dark Roast Coffee
1 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
1 Tbsp. smoked paprika
1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. black pepper
½ tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. onion powder
HOW TO MAKE
Add the chopped parsley, garlic, shallot, oregano, crushed red pepper, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper to the bowl of a food processor. Process until finely minced but not a paste.
Transfer the mixture to a small bowl and pour the extra-virgin olive oil over the mixture. Gently mix to combine. Set aside while you prepare your steak.
Make the steak
Combine the Don Francisco Dark Roast Espresso in a small bowl with the brown sugar, paprika, and all other spices.
Sprinkle 1 - 2 teaspoons of the coffee rub on both sides of a ribeye steak. Rub the mixture in. Let the coffee rubbed steaks rest until they reach room temperature.
Preheat a grill to 450 degrees. Grill steaks to desired doneness. Transfer the steaks to a plate, cover with foil and rest 15 minutes before serving.
Slice and serve with Chimichurri.
Enjoy, with a tall glass of Don Francisco’s Cold Brew!
