How To Prepare

01.

Whisk shallot, garlic, barrel-aged coffee, vinegar, mustard, maple syrup, oil, and 1 tsp. pepper in a medium bowl. Pour half of the marinade into a resealable plastic bag. Add steak, seal bag, and turn to coat. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour. Cover remaining marinade and set aside.

02.

Prepare the grill for medium-high heat. Remove steak from marinade; discard used marinade. Season steak with salt and pepper and grill, turning and basting often with reserved marinade, 8–10 minutes for medium-rare. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

03.

DO AHEAD: Steak can be marinated 1 day ahead. Chill, turning occasionally. Chill reserved marinade. Bring steak to room temperature before grilling.
