- 1 fillet of beef, around 500g
- 125ml meat stock
- 100 ml of coffee (i.e. 2 full cups)
- Half a yellow onion
- extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of acacia honey
- Salt to taste
First we prepare the coffee: for this recipe we have chosen the full but not bitter taste of 101CAFFE ‘Gran Milano. Once prepared, set it aside to cool.
Now cut the fillet into slices about 1.5 cm thick and place them on a plate.
Chop the onion and sauté it with a little oil. Once it’s lightly browned, transfer it to a bowl and set it aside.
In the same skillet in which you brown the onion, add a drop of oil and the slices of beef.
Cook over low heat for 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Finally, increase the heat to brown the surface, keeping an eye on the right time to flip the slices.
Once the slices of meat have browned on the surface, pour the coffee, onions and honey into the pan; immediately lower the heat and mix all the ingredients. Let them cook over low heat for 10 minutes, occasionally turning the slices of beef in the coffee.
Using a ladle, add a little broth, little by little, so that the coffee sauce always has the right consistency. Cooking time will vary depending on personal preference: medium or well done? Free to choose..
Once the heat is out, place the slices of beef on a serving platter, and pour the sauce over the entire surface of the meat. If you want to accentuate the flavor of the coffee even more, sprinkle the slices with a veil of ground coffee.
The beef with coffee is ready to be tasted; we advise you to associate it with a few slices of freshly seared pepper, but you can choose the accompaniment you prefer. And finally, don’t miss a good espresso, like the 101CAFFE ‘Gran Milano
