A delicious coffee rubbed Certified Angus Beef brand Porterhouse Steak topped with a Red Wine Chocolate Sauce that is perfect for Valentine's Day or any other special occasion.
For the rub:
  • 1 t. ground coffee
  • 1 t. paprika
  • 1 t. chili powder
  • 1 t. mustard powder
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • 1 t. black pepper
  • 1 T. sea salt
For the red wine chocolate sauce:
  • 3 T. butter
  • ½ small onion, minced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ c. dry red wine
  • 2 c. beef stock
  • 1-2 oz. dark chocolate
  • 1 t. fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 t. sea salt
For the steaks:
  • 2 large Certified Angus Beef brand Porterhouse Steaks (about 1 pound each)
  • 1 T. olive oil
  1. To make the rub simply combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix together. Set aside.
  2. To make the sauce place the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once it is melted add in the onion and garlic and saute for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add in the red wine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 20 minutes or until the liquid reduces by at least half.
  4. Add in the beef stock and cook for 20 additional minutes.
  5. Stir in the chocolate, pepper, and salt. Mix until chocolate has melted then reduce heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the sauce has thickened. Remove from heat.
  6. To make the steaks rub each one with half of the coffee rub. Make sure to rub both sides evenly.
  7. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  8. Add the olive oil to a large saute pan over medium high heat. Allow the olive oil to heat for 2 minutes or so. Add in the porterhouse steaks and sear for 2-3 minutes per side.
  9. If your saute pan is oven safe simply slide it from the stove into the oven. If not, place the steaks in a baking dish and slide into the oven.
  10. Bake for about 10 minutes or until a thermometer reads 130 degrees. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 2-3 minutes.
  11. Place each steak on a plate and spoon a tablespoon or two of the sauce on top. Serve the remaining sauce in a small dish on the side.
  12. Add the porterhouse
