When we moved last year, we left our grill behind. Now I’m stuck doing all my grilling with an indoor grill pan. The house gets smoky, and we have to open up all the windows. Have you ever tried opening up windows in a 1930s house? Such a pain! The sacrifice is worth it though. It’s the beginning of Spring, and I had to celebrate with some Rosemary Jalapeño Steak for me and my guys. They are big meat eaters, and I was all about the rosemary. Ooooh, the smell of fresh rosemary! Don’t be afraid of the jalapeño either. If my 8-year-old can handle it, so can you.
This Rosemary Jalapeño Steak is Ah-MAZING. The trick is to marinate the meat for a long period of time. I would recommend marinating it overnight, or at least 8 hours in the fridge. You want to let the flavors of the rosemary and jalapeño seep into the meat. I used sirloin flap steak, but you can use skirt or flank steak. Flap is a great cut of meat for the grill. Also, I’m using coffee in this recipe. I know it may sound weird, but you gotta give it a try. I first got the idea when I visited an oil and vinegar shop. They had a coffee balsamic vinegar that was delicious. I made my own version of it in this recipe by combining what I had available – balsamic vinegar and coffee.

Oh this looks incredible! I can’t imagine not having our grill. We don’t do steak often but when we do it is for sure on the grill. I need to get more creative with flavors so this will be a fun one to try!
Steak on the grill is the best. Hope you give this recipe a try.
This looks amazing. My husband is on a high protein diet and he would love this. Can’t wait to try it.
Good for him! Hope you guys enjoy. 🙂
Not sure about the coffee?! Everything else sounds amazing! What does the coffee add to the marinade? Is there a purpose for it? THANK YOU!!!
I saw Ina Garten add coffee to her brownies once, and I was like WHAT?! But then I tried it.. Delicious! Coffee adds great flavor to meat marinades. It adds that robust, strong flavor. You don’t taste it though. Even without the coffee, this steak is really good.
We made this last night and it was fantastic. This recipe is a keeper for sure.
Makes me happy to hear that you enjoyed this recipe! 🙂
