I recently read a health blog that has a great substitute for meat marinades. Now I agree that meat marinades are an excellent way to spice up a steak, but those marinades are often made with a lot of salt (sodium) and a lot of extra calories that I surely don’t need. Well, the health blog I read, called The Greatist (which reminds someone of my age of Jackie Gleason, but I digress) the blog suggests you soak your steak in a little coffee and skip the extra sodium.
The process is unbelievably simple, really:
Try soaking your steak in coffee for about an hour before grilling. That’s all you have to do for tender, flavorful, smoky meat without the extra calories and sodium. In fact, ground coffee also makes a incredible, crusty rub for all of your grilling favorites.
It might sound a little strange, but the amazing sounding combination of coffee and steak makes it worth at least a trial run. We hope that you’ll use our coffee but either way please let us know if you give it a shot yourself.
