Coffee Crusted Steak with Mushrooms and Roasted Broccoli

This type of dinner is one of my favorites. My boyfriend happens to love broccoli, especially when I roast it and use red pepper flakes, so we do end up eating it quite often.

Steak Ingredients:

1 New York strip steak

1 tsp coffee grounds

1/4 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp garlic powder

Salt and pepper

Rosemary Spring

1 tbs. butter

1 garlic clove

1/4 c. chopped mushrooms

Broccoli Ingredients:

1 Broccoli crown

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tbs. olive oil

1/4 tsp garlic powder

Salt and pepper

  1. First you need to take the steak out of the fridge and get it to room temperature, about 20 minutes should be sufficient to guard against uneven cooking.din24
  2. While the steak is waiting mix the rub together, the coffee grounds, garlic powder, and paprika.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees f.
  4. Chop the broccoli into small pieces, trying to keep them around the same size so they cook even.
  5. Dump the broccoli in a bowl and mix them with the oil, red pepper flakes, garlic, and some salt and pepper.din22
  6. Spread the broccoli on a cookie sheet evenly and pop them in the oven, for about 20 minutes or until the tips start turning brown.
  7. Heat up a skillet for the steak on medium heat (I use my cast iron) with a drizzle of olive oil, a garlic clove (smashed, not chopped), and a rosemary sprig.
  8. Generously season both sides of the steak with salt, pepper, and the coffee rub. When the skillet is hotv
  9. Let it get a nice caramelized crust on the bottom before you flip it. Which means for about two minutes DON’T TOUCH it.
  10. Once it’s ready flip it and leave it alone for another two minutes.
  11. Add the butter into the skillet and swirl it in the garlic and rosemary.
  12. Using a spoon continuously baste the steak for another three minutes, or until it reaches a perfect 130 f.
  13. Take the steak out and let it rest. Again, while it’s resting off to the side DON’T mess with it. The steak needs time to cool and redistribute all the juices. If you cut it now and you will end up with a very dry piece of meat. (If you insist on having your steak medium or well done add a few extra minutes during the basting step or until it reaches around 140 or 150 f).
  14. While the steak rests add the mushrooms to the skillet, and stir to coat in the butter.
  15. Cook for a few minutes until tender, stirring occasionally to prevent them from burning.
  16. Top the steak with the mushrooms and serve the broccoli on the side.

Enjoy! I added some boxed mushroom risotto to round out my meal. Although honey biscuits, rice, or grain works well. Comment below if you decide to try the steak or broccoli, or what your favorite steak rub is!
