It wasn’t a typo, my friends.
Yup, you see it right. The glistening and juicy T-bone steak you see right here is coffee marinated!
It’s no secret that I am a huge coffee lover, so much so it has become my daily routine. My appreciation towards locally roasted coffee began when I lived in Orange. I was spoiled with delicious coffee in Orange; I am even more spoiled with options living in Melbourne.
As much as I enjoy my daily coffee fix, it can be more than that just a beverage. It can be more than a flavourful addition to baked goods. In fact, it can also be a cooking ingredient.
For this marinade recipe, I used Just Fair Coffee capsules that are 100% biodegradable and compatible with Nespresso Coffee Machines. Just Fair Coffee is made from 100% Fairtrade and organically certified Arabica beans that are sourced from Honduras and Peru and roasted, blended and packed in Melbourne. If the name is any indication, it supports fair trade. It is about giving the producers in developing countries a fair price for their work in order to create a more sustainable economic environment, as well as to ensure the longevity of the jobs, sustainability and environment in the area. Basically it prohibits child or forced labour.
Besides coffee capsules, the Just Fair Coffee range is available in whole beans, ground and delicious hot chocolate. It is available in independent supermarkets nationally, retailing for $9.99 and $6.99 for capsules respectively
Do you know not only can coffee be used as a flavour enhancer but it can also act as a meat tenderiser? A popular belief is that the acidic nature of coffee helps to soften tough muscle.
