This dish is a testament to the power of combining bold flavors and innovative techniques. The coffee rub infuses the steak with a deep, rich flavor, while the fresh radish salad adds a crisp, refreshing contrast.


  • 4 steaks (ribeye or sirloin, about 1 inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons ground coffee
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. Prepare the Coffee Rub: In a small bowl, combine the ground coffee, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  2. Season the Steaks: Pat the steaks dry with paper towels. Rub the coffee mixture generously over both sides of each steak. Let them sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes.
  3. Sear the Steaks: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear each steak for about 2 minutes on each side, just until a crust forms. (They will finish cooking in the crockpot.)
  4. Cook in the Crockpot: Place the seared steaks in the crockpot. Pour the beef broth over the steaks. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours, or until the steaks are tender and cooked to your desired doneness.
  5. Prepare the Radish Salad: While the steaks are cooking, combine the sliced radishes, lemon juice, and chopped parsley in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss well to combine.
  6. Serve: Once the steaks are done, remove them from the crockpot and let them rest for a few minutes. Plate each steak with a generous serving of the radish salad on the side.
