Dot’s Steak & Onions with Soy-Coffee Sauce

This is yet another sauce I used to sip like coffee which, incidentally, the sauce includes. Dot was always good at dinner-making, but this was one of my all-time faves.

The soy-coffee-worcestershire combo is as tasty as it is surprising. Serve this up with Barrett’s Best Mashed Potatoes – the goat cheese version sounds like a good match to me – and you’ve got a perfectly updated version of an American classic.

3-5 pound sirloin (you can also use flank or filet)
tenderizer
1 cup strong coffee
3/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbsp Worcestershire
1 tbsp vinegar
1 large onion, chopped

  1. Mix all ingredients except sirloin and tenderizer.
  2. Apply tenderizer to the steak and pour mixture over steak.
  3. Marinate, turning every few hours at room temperature up to 4 hours (or marinate in fridge up to 24 hours).
  4. Grill steak until medium-rare. (You can also bake, pan-sear, or broil the steaks if you prefer.)
  5. While steak rests bring marinade and onions to a boil.
  6. Slice steak and top with onion sauce. Reserve some for drinking if you are a non-recovering salt addict like myself.
