Beef Braised in Coffee is not a combination that many people will think of. However it really works well. I use espresso coffee as it has good strength and lovely flavour. To allay the fears of some, the beef does not end up tasting like your chewing coffee. It is a subtle flavour that boosts the flavour and texture of the beef. Served as a main dish on a bed of rice for a wholesome meal.

Beef cooked in coffee may sound strange but it so works. The taste is amazing yet subtle.

  • Dredge the beef in the seasoned flour, shaking off the excess.
  • Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet and brown the meat on all sides.
  • Transfer to a heavy pot or slow cooker.
  • Using the same skillet, saute the onions until lightly browned and transfer to the pot.
  • Add the carrots, potatoes, and turnips to the pot.
  • Deglaze the skillet with the coffee and add to the pot.
  • Add the wine and thyme, stirring to combine all the ingredients.
  • Cover tightly and bake in a preheated 300F (150C) oven, or simmer over a very low flame on the stove top, or cook in the slow cooker set on high, for 2 to 3 hours.
