Soak Steak In Coffee For Tender Meat Without The Extra Sodium

The process is incredibly simple:

Try soaking those steaks in coffee for an hour before grilling for tender, flavorful, smoky meat without the extra calories and sodium. Coffee grounds also make a fantastic, crunchy rub for all those grilling favourites.

It might sound a little strange, but the amazing-sounding combination of coffee and steak makes it worth at least a trial run. Let us know if you give it a shot yourself.
