Tools You'll Need

  • Measuring Cups
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Cutting Board
  • Chef’s Knife
  • Medium Mixing Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Shallow Baking Dish
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Instant-read Thermometer


  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 cup brewed coffee, room temperature
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil*
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 4 – 8oz. sirloin steaks


  1. Whisk ingredients together

    Whisk the garlic, coffee, vinegar, mustard, honey, oil, salt, and pepper together in a medium-sized bowl.

  2. Cover steaks in marinade

    Place the steaks in a shallow baking dish, and pour half the marinade over the steaks. Then turn them over and coat the other side with marinade.

  3. Let steaks sit

    Set remaining marinade aside, and let the steaks sit for about 45–60 minutes until they come to room temperature.

  4. Fire up the grill

    Heat your grill to medium-high heat.

  5. Top off steaks with salt and pepper

    Remove steaks from marinade and season on both sides with salt and pepper, to taste.

  6. Grill and baste for 4–5 minutes

    Once it's heated up, place the steaks on the grill. Baste steaks with the remaining marinade you set aside earlier, and cook for about 4–5 minutes until golden and slightly charred.

  7. Flip steaks and cook for an additional 3–5 minutes

    Turn the steaks over and baste, then cook for an additional 3–5 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer reads 135º (medium-rare).

  8. Remove and rest

    Remove the steaks from the grill, and cover them with aluminum foil. Let them rest for 10 minutes before serving.
