If you like the subtle nature of different coffees (tart, fruity, acidic, etc.) and you like a nice piece of steak, this is the dish for you. We use super-finely ground coffee and spices to make a dry rub for the meat. When seared, it imparts a rich and earthy flavor. It’s served with creamy polenta and a blend of sautéed yellow squash and ripe tomatoes. All you need is basic kitchen equipment (pots/pans, bowls, a knife, salt, pepper, oil) and around 15 minutes to create this adventurous dinner for two.

Overall this was a good dish, but the steaks were super small, but much too thick and hard to cook properly. It didn’t seem like enough for 2 to me.
4 Stars
Yummy! Nice flavors, good portion size!
4 Stars
The steak was very good. I had not had polenta before, but I really enjoyed it. I just wish there were more veggies and a little less of the polenta. Half of the dish was carbs and only a quarter was veggies.
5 Stars
Really great. Easy to make. Would purchase again.

Delicious, seasonal, all ingredients agreeable, generous polenta portion. Spice for veggies, and more of them. Less cooking oil. Prepare everything while pan heats. Steak, vegs in 1 pan. Try to microwave polenta.

Steak was tough

Fast and easy, Wasn't a huge fan of the rub. Unfortunately my home has slightly bigger appetites and size was a tad small for hubby especially but myself as well and I generally have a normal expectancy of portions.

The meal was fantastic but unfortunately one of the pieces of steak was all bristle and fat and could not be eaten. Disappointed with the meat quality we were sent. Wish that both pieces would've been edible.

Pros : Quality of the food was great. All three different components came together to make one meal. Simple yet multi steps. Cons: limited portion: the squash ration was very limited that I ended up adding some.

Rub was tasty but the meal came without the squash
