Use Coffee to Flavor Steak

5

 

Meat marinades can pack tons of sodium, but the key to a better steak might have been hiding in the kitchen all along. 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 favorites.

The Takeaway: Try using coffee as a marinade or rub in place of high-sodium standbys.
