    extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon
    brown sugar

    whole black peppercorns, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon
  • 1 pound
    flank steak, trimmed of fat
  1. Whisk coffee, vinegar, oil, sugar, garlic, peppercorns and salt in a glass dish large enough for meat to lie flat. Add steak and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours.
  2. Heat grill to high.
