Coffee Marinade for Steak II
(enough for two 8-ounce steaks)
1 T. olive oil
1/4 C. minced red onion
1 T. minced garlic
1/2 C. water
1/4 C. rum
3 T. instant coffee granules
1/4 C. balsamic vinegar
1/4 C. red French salad dressing
2 T. molasses
2 T. stone ground mustard
1 T. Tabasco sauce
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
½ tsp. Mrs. Dash extra spicy seasoning blend (or fresh ground black pepper)
In a small saucepan, sauté onions and garlic in olive oil. Add remaining ingredients and bring just to a boil. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Cut steaks into bite-size pieces and place into a gallon-sized Ziploc baggie, pour marinade into baggie, and seal shut. Marinate for at least 2 hours and up to 24 hours.
Lightly oil a grill pan. Add steak pieces and cook over medium heat until desired doneness. (Five minutes was about medium/medium-rare.)
