I love coffee. Coffee, coffee, coffee, you make me happy, you give me energy, I love the way you smell, I love the way you taste. You, coffee, are one of my favorite things in life!

I love coffee so much, that I try to find other ways to incorporate it into my life, besides just drinking it…. like cooking with it!

One of my first forays into cooking with coffee was almost two years ago when I created this Coffee Crusted Tri Tip.

Don’t worry if the beans seem like they have a lot of sauce. Just use a slotted spoon to serve the beans, then dip some nice, toasty bread in the sauce to soak it up… at least that’s what I did… because the sauce is awesome!!!

It’s brown sugar, coffee & bacon, come on people, YUM!
