Coffee-Ginger Crusted Steaks
1 1/2 lbs grilling steaks (I used a NY strip steak.)
2/3 cup gingersnaps
1/3 cup whole coffee beans
salt and pepper
- Preheat grill. Place cookies and coffee beans in food processor; pulse until finely ground. Place mixture on plate.
- Season steaks on both sides with salt and pepper. Coat both sides of steaks with coffee bean mixture; press with fingertips to evenly coat.
- Place steaks on grill; close lid. Grill 3–5 minutes on each side or until internal temperature reaches 145°F [for medium-rare]. Use a meat thermometer to accurately ensure desired doneness.
Note: Steaks may be cooked in grill pan preheated on medium-high. Lightly coat pan with canola oil. Cook time will be about the same.
- Remove steaks from grill and let stand 3–5 minutes. Cut into 4 portions and serve.
