Total Time: 1 hr 20 mins (including 1 hour marinating time)

Flank Steak With Coffee-Peppercorn Marinade

Coffee has a remarkable affinity with beef. Here, it is complemented by balsamic vinegar, garlic and crushed peppercorns.


  • 3 tablespoons strong brewed coffee
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound flank steak, trimmed of fat


Step 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.
Step 2
Heat grill to high.
Step 3
Remove steak from marinade (discard marinade). Lightly oil grill rack (see Tip). Place steak on grill and cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice thinly across the grain and serve.


To oil a grill rack: Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.
