4 tablespoons olive oil

1 recipe Tamarind, Rosemary and Honey Glaze, recipe follows

1 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon chopped garlic

1 tablespoon freshly chopped cilantro leaves

Chili sauce, to taste

Lime juice, to taste

3/4 teaspoon sea salt

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 lime, halved

Tamarind, Rosemary and Honey Glaze

2 tablespoons dark roasted coffee beans

For the Tamarind, Rosemary and Honey Glaze:

1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

Directions

  1. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Season the steak on both sides with the salt and pepper. Drizzle both sides with the olive oil and brush so that the steak is evenly coated on all sides with the oil.

Turn the steak over again, brush with the remaining glaze and cook the steak an additional 4 minutes. Turn the steak over 1 final time and cook for 4 minutes more.
  3. Remove the steak from the grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  4. Meanwhile, make the sauce:
  5. In a small bowl, add the sour cream, garlic, cilantro, chili sauce and lime juice and stir until combined. Set aside until ready to serve.
  6. When ready to serve, slice the steak across the grain and serve, with the slices arranged in a shingled pattern on a large platter. Season the steak slices with the sea salt and drizzle with the extra-virgin olive oil. Squeeze the juice from the lime halves over the steak, place a dollop of the sauce and serve.
