Spice Rubbed Flank Steak


  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1-2 pound flank steaks

Why not try a couple of spiced flank steaks on the grill? The leftovers make a great salad tossed with arugula, tomato and bleu cheese!


In a small bowl combine the coriander, five-spice powder, chili powder, cinnamon, sea salt, and brown sugar. Rub both sides of the flank steak with the mixture and let sit for 1 to 2 hours, covered, in the refrigerator.

Preheat grill to medium and grill for 5 to 6 minutes per side, until the meat is browned with nice grill marks. Allow the meat to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

Slice on the bias (at a 45-degree angle) into 1/4-inch slices.
