This morning, I had the pleasure of presenting Coffee Marinated Hangar Steak on CBC's Weekend Morning Show with guest host, Laurie Hoogstraten.
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 1/2 cups strong coffee, room temperature (I used Ethiopian Yergicheffe, from Green Bean Coffee, with notes of cocoa, available at St. Norbert's Farmer's Market)
2 tbs favourite spice blend (I used Ras el Hanout, but Mitmita, and others would work nicely)
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 tbs. olive oil
1 small shallot, chopped or grated
1 Hangar Steak (Available at Wildfire Farms at St. Norbert's Farmer's Market)
Kosher or sea salt, to taste
Whisk shallot, garlic, coffee, mustard, brown sugar, oil in a medium bowl. Pour mustard into a resealable bag and add the steak, seal the bag and coat. Marinate at room temperature for an hour or refrigerate overnight.
Prepare the grill for medium-high heat. Remove steak from bag, season and grill, turning every few minutes, 8-10 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.
Serve with wonderful breads that you can find at Old Church Bakery, found on Saturday at St. Norbert's Farmer's Market and in Steinbach.
