  • Heat oil in cast iron to high. If refrigerated take out steak to reach room temperature. Combine coffee, brown sugar, garlic, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, olive oil, cumin, cayenne pepper and salt in a bowl.
  • Massage the marinade into the meat (optional: let meat marinade for 20-30mins) and once the oil in the cast iron starts to smoke add in the steak.
