It seems more than a little odd to me that I would begin telling you about how to make a special dinner like Chocolate & Coffee Rubbed New York Strip Steak with Bourbon Parmesan Cream Sauce for someone you love by talking about something that for years had bugged me about my dear sweet hubby.

Stick with me; this is not a post to throw the love of my life under the bus. Rather, it’s an example of how one person’s unique food habit can inspire the culinary aptitude of a cook (me) and meet the challenge of making the perfect meal for my Valentine.

This crazy delicious Chocolate and Coffee Rubbed Steak recipe is elegant enough for an extra-special night with your sweetie, or fast enough for any day of the week. Our suggestion is to enjoy the Bourbon Parmesan Cream Sauce-topped New York Strip Steak with fresh steamed green beans and a simple side salad for a memorable, satisfying, quick and easy Valentine’s Day dinner.

If you’ve been reading my posts for a while, you probably recall that I’ve mentioned before that my husband is a “Saucy Guy.” He loves sauces on absolutely everything.

Without going into all the details of how enraged his love of sauces has annoyed me, I will tell you that this saucy-ness of his has been more than just a little frustration point at mealtimes. And, this repeatedly has happened for years.

Then, one day not so long ago, I remembered an old saying that goes, “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”

So, I set out to learn how to create foods with complementary sauces that this man of mine couldn’t resist (or at least foods that he wouldn’t feel were necessary to sauce himself).

Guess what? I Surprised Myself!

Not only did the sauces take many of our favorite meals up another notch, but I also taught myself to use sauces in a variety of ways I had never thought possible. I discovered that sauces could be one of the biggest players in maximizing flavor in food. They are also the perfect way to finish a dish or entrée.

In this recipe for New York Strip Steak, I’ve created a sauce that enhances the flavor and balances the seasonings and spices from all the components used in the rub while finishing off the steak for visual appeal.

It’s well-known that we all “eat with our eyes first,”

And it’s true.

Coming off the grill this steak looks like most any other New York Strip Steak but slice it up and add the Bourbon Parmesan Cream Sauce, and it becomes a steak that you can’t wait to devour!

If maximizing the flavor of the steak is your goal...

Adding the Bourbon Parmesan Cream Sauce does that too. The profile flavors of vanilla, oak, and caramel from the bourbon blend perfectly with the nutty taste of the parmesan and the sweetness of the cream to make a thick, creamy sauce that compliments the beefy grilled flavor in the steak.

I know that this recipe might sound a little bit different, but I encourage you to try it out, and when you do it, remember that everyone’s taste preferences are unique. So, when making the steak rub if the Chipotle Chili Powder or the Spanish Hot Paprika sound like they’ll be a little too spicy for you, it doesn’t mean that it’s the only chili powder or paprika you can use. Adjust accordingly. You can always switch out hotter spices for others, add a little less, or a little more. Season little by little, smell, and taste as you go.

The sauce enhances the flavor and balances the seasonings and spices from all the components used in the rub while finishing off the steak for a great visual appeal when served.

The bottom line is having fun.

The rub seasonings and spices kick up the flavor of the New York Strip Steak for a recipe that’s super quick and easy to make — combining a few standard pantry spices, cocoa powder and a tiny bit of ground coffee to rub on the steak before grilling elevates the flavor of the beef. Once grilled, slice it thin, then serve with this five-minute Bourbon Parmesan Cream Sauce to fancy it all up. Yeah, delicious. Plus, it’s gluten-free!

KITCHEN NOTES

*Option: You can also use non-flavored ground coffee.
If you typically don’t purchase flavored coffee and want to try it for this recipe, we used chocolate cherry, look for the small one-pot sampler coffee packs. These small (1.5 oz.) packs work great for when you're looking to try out a flavor!

Meet Kymberley [Upson] Pekrul

A professional writer and self-taught Gfree lifestyle expert on [most] gluten-free things, I’ve always loved cooking and creating delicious foods from scratch for myself and those I love.

My journey began when everything I thought I knew about cooking and eating suddenly changed one day when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

I live in what’s known as the Holylands of Central Wisconsin. All the recipes you’ll find here are gluten-free and inspired by the people and places I love most. Whenever possible, I cook with seasonal ingredients using whole foods – Making dishes suitable for everyday life and all food lovers gathered at the same table.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!
