Coffee Rub with Coffee style wine? Sure! And who better than Tracy Foulkes with her fabulous NOMU coffee rub to do the tricks for us.
2 x 500g grass-fed T-bone steaks
NoMU Extra Virgin Olive Oil
NoMU Coffee Rub
3 large potatoes, 1 with skin on and 2 peeled
A knob of salted butter
A small handful of chives, chopped (reserve some for serving)
NoMU Sea Salt
NoMU Black Pepper
Season the steaks generously with NoMU Coffee Rub and olive oil, set aside.
In a medium-size saucepan, boil the potatoes in salted water until soft when pierced with a fork. Slice the potato (with the skin on) in half lengthways, and carefully scrape out a little of the potato, leaving a potato skin case. Drizzle the potato skin casings with olive oil and set aside for braaing later. Mash the peeled potatoes and add the butter, a dash of olive oil and the milk. When you are happy with the consistency, stir in the chives and season to taste with salt and black pepper.
Carefully braai the potato skin casings until they are crispy and golden, set aside. Braai the steaks over very hot coals for 2-3 minutes a side (depending on thickness, and your preference). While the steak is resting, scoop the potato mash into the skins and top with the extra chopped chives.
Once the steak has rested, tuck in and enjoy!
