Rarely do we partake in the quick cooking, whole muscle meat of animals. I find it incredibly difficult to justify a cost of $14-$20 per pound for anything. So that’s why we let what’s on sale dictate what we eat (Aren’t you happy to see something other than ground beef or sausage?). Thank goodness for the alcoholiday Cinco de Mayo and the sales on avocados, tequila and MEAT.
Big, fat belated congratulations to this girl for her performance at the CrossFit Games Southwest Regional. She’s amazing (and single).
- 2-4 steaks*
- 1 T cocoa powder
- 1 T instant coffee
- 1 t cinnamon
- 1/2 t sugar
- 1/2 t cayenne pepper
In a small bowl, whisk together the cocoa, coffee, cinnamon & cayenne. Generously coat both sides of your steaks.
Heat your steak cooking vessel of choice to around medium-high heat. Right before you start searing your steaks, give them a nice, hefty sprinkle of salt.
Sear both sides until a nice crust has developed and the steaks are cooked through to your preference. Depending on the steak type and thickness, anywhere from 2-4 minutes per side should suffice for medium-rare.
