Recipe by Paula.
I first tried this dish on my last trip to Portugal. Now, the combination of meat and coffee might seem a little strange at first but I fell in love with it. The bitterness of the coffee goes well with the sweetness of beef, especially sirloin. You can always adjust the strength of the coffee to suit your taste. Weaker coffee, milder taste. If you like a strong coffee flavour, use a shot of espresso instead. You can also adjust the amount of cream you use to get just the right flavour combination for yourself. Enjoy!
1. Rub both sides of the steaks with the garlic then season with salt and pepper. Reserve the garlic.
7. Plate the steaks and spoon the sauce over them. Serve with roast or fried potatoes.
