So what do most people do on Mother’s Day to honor that special person? It’s generally one of two things: you take her to a restaurant that’s crowded with other people taking their mothers out, or else you cook dinner for her at home and she ends up doing a lot of the work herself. Neither one of those options sounds all that special, does it?
But there’s a third choice: a Mother’s Day cookout. You’re well out of Mom’s kitchen so she can relax, there’s nothing that brings a family together like a lazy Sunday around the grill, and you can make her a veritable feast while she sits and relaxes!
This recipe for grilled coffee-coriander strip steaks comes to us from The Daily Meal. It’s not something Mom is likely to cook for herself, so it will be a real treat!
Grilled Coffee-Coriander Strip Steaks
4 New York strip steaks, about 1½ inches thick
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Coffee-Coriander Steak Rub
2 tablespoons ground coffee
3 tablespoons smoked paprika
1½ tablespoons coriander seeds, lightly toasted and ground
½ teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
2 tablespoons kosher salt
Mix the rub ingredients together and set aside. Remove the steaks from the refrigerator and allow them to come to room temperature for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, heat a grill to high, placing the majority of the coals and a couple (optional) fist-sized wood chunks in the center of the grill to create a cool zone on the outer edges.
Once the steaks have come to room temperature, coat all sides with the olive oil; then season generously with the coffee-coriander rub. Place the steaks in the center of the grill, cover, and cook for 3 minutes. Flip and grill, covered, for another 3 minutes. Flip and cook each side for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, until they reach your desired level of doneness (145° to 150°F for medium-rare and 150° to 160°F for medium according to the USDA. Remember, however, that the meat will rise in temperature as much as 10 degrees as it rests). Remove from the grill and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes so that the juices have time to redistribute and don’t end up all over your serving platter or cutting board.
