Total time30 minutes


Slice the sirloin against the grain into strips and layer them on a serving plate with sauce on the side. Garnish the steak with parsley instead of cilantro, if desired, and serve with roasted baby carrots and fingerling potatoes.


1/2 teaspoon
cumin, ground
1/2 teaspoon
coriander, ground
1/2 teaspoon
chili powder
1/4 teaspoon
allspice, ground
black pepper
1 pound
steak, sirloin (trimmed)
2 tablespoons
butter (unsalted and divided)
1 tablespoon
garlic (minced)
1 cup
onion, yellow (sliced)
1 tablespoon
brown sugar
3/4 cup
coffee (brewed)
1/4 cup


In a small bowl, stir together the cumin, coriander, chili powder, allspice, salt and pepper until thoroughly mixed. Season both sides of the sirloin with the spice mix. Heat a large iron skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp of butter. When hot, place the sirloin in the pan and cook for a few minutes on each side until steak reaches desired temperature (145 degrees F for “medium”). Remove the steak from the pan and set aside to rest. In the same pan, add the remaining butter and sauté the garlic and onion until tender. Add the brown sugar, coffee and rum to the pan and bring to a simmer. Stir to incorporate any brown bits left in the pan from cooking the steak. Let simmer until the sauce slightly reduces, about 5 to 10 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the steak and garnish with a sprinkle of cilantro before serving.
