Coffee Masala Steak

Coffee Masala Steak

Coffee Masala is simply wonderful in coffee – it illuminates the flavors of the coffee beans and adds a sweet aromatic whiff to the coffee. In food, particularly red meat, it kind of does the same thing. Rub coffee masala on a beef roast, a lamb leg and watch the spices come to life and temper the meat flavors.
