"A decadent surprise to a worthy cut of beef that pairs very well with the spicy fruit flavor accomplished only by adding Cherry Creme Coffee grounds, delicious!"


This is a Door County Coffee Fan recipe. It was not made in the kitchens of the Door County Coffee Café.



Featured ingredient: Cherry Creme Coffee 10 oz. Bag Ground

  • 1/3 Cup Ground Cherry Creme Coffee
  • 2 Tablespoons Kosher Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Granulated Garlic
  • 1 Teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 4 (2-inch thick), Boneless New York Strip Steaks



  1. In a small bowl combine: Cherry Creme Coffee, Salt, Black Pepper, Sugar, Garlic, Paprika, and Chili Powder
  2. Press dry-rub firmly onto steaks, and let rest for 40 minutes
  3. After steaks have rested, preheat oven to 425 degrees
  4. Heat a large saute pan on medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter, tilt pan to cover the bottom of the pan before placing 2 steaks at a time onto the pan.
  5. Cook each side for approx. 2-3 minutes, or until seared color is to your liking, before flipping steaks over for another 2-3 minutes
  6. Place seared steaks on a baking pan unless your saute pan can accommodate all 4 steaks, and cook to desired doneness; approx. 7 minutes for medium (140 degrees), remove and let rest for 7-9 minutes, follow the direction of the grain (muscle fibers), and slice across it for the most tender slices of beef
