Sirloin steak flavored with a coffee and spice rub, seared to perfection and loaded into a hearty sandwich.


2 tsp NESCAFE TASTER'S CHOICE House Blend 100% Pure Instant Coffee Granules

1/2 tsp paprika or chili powder

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1 lb (about 3/4-inch-thick) boneless sirloin steak, trimmed of fat

1/3 cup water

2 Tbs reduced-sodium soy sauce

2 tsp balsamic vinegar

1/2 tsp granulated sugar

1 tsp canola oil

4 hoagie rolls

Grilled onions (optional)

Sliced Gruyère cheese (optional)


COMBINE coffee granules, paprika, pepper and garlic powder in small bowl; stir until well blended. Sprinkle evenly over both sides of beef; let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Combine water, soy sauce, vinegar and sugar in small bowl; set aside.

HEAT large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Add beef; cook for 4 minutes. Turn over; reduce heat to medium-low and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until desired doneness. Place beef on cutting board (save skillet with drippings); cover with foil. Let stand for 5 minutes.

PLACE skillet with drippings over medium-high heat; add soy sauce mixture. Bring to a boil; boil, scraping bottom and side of skillet occasionally, for 2 minutes or until reduced to about 1/4 cup. Thinly slice beef diagonally. Divide beef between hoagies; drizzle with sauce. Top with grilled onions and cheese.
