Recipe courtesy Sandra Lee-Food TV If you are a lover of coffee and coffee beans then you should love this recipe. The coffee makes a nice crust with a bite and when served with the beef coffee gravy it's a very different twist to beef tenderloin. Use a good quality of coffee and grind the beans yourself for the best flavor. If you're using pre-ground Folgers coffee then you'll "get what you paid for"...
