Today was very hot, sunny and there was a little breeze.  I didn't realize hot it was till I started to grill.  But the end product was worth it.

Grilled Coffee rubbed skirt steak with, grilled artichokes and potatoes

So, this is really easy and I have posted the coffee rubbed  a little while ago.  This is a really delicious dish.  I use only Hardwood Charcoal......


baby artichokes 8, or more if you wish, they are so good
small red potatoes, cut into thin slices, 4
skirt steak, 1.5 kg 
olive oil

4 plum tomatoes, seeded and cut into small pieces
2 garlic cloves mashed
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil to taste
basil about 4 large leaves, cut into chiffonade
parsley about a hand full, minced


Mix all the salsa ingredients together and let sit for a few hours.

Coffee rub:
3 tablespoons chili powder
3 tablespoons finely ground coffee
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
salt & pepper to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Mix everything together and put into a jar.  You may want to make more because it is so good.

Take the meat and rub it with the coffee rub all over and let it sit for a bit.

For the baby artichokes, clean and cut in half and blanch in lemon water for about 15 minutes.  When done remove and let them drain.  When drained rub with olive oil and salt and pepper and let them sit.

For the potatoes, slice into thin slices, rub with olive oil and salt and pepper.

Start the grill and when coals are grey, cook the meat, artichokes and potatoes.

When done, slice the meat and add the salsa if you wish
