Spice-Rubbed Flank Steak

We are a health conscious family, and we still like and eat meat!  The trick is to find healthier ways to fix it! Many spices contain health promoting qualities and flank steak is a leaner piece of meat.


clip_image0021 12-16 oz Flank Steak, trimmed
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2+ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Cooking spray (we use olive oil in a pampered chef sprayer)

Preheat broiler (or grill) combine the spices & sugar in a small bowl; rub evenly over steak. Place steak on broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 6 minutes on each side or until your degree of likeness.

Let stand 3 minutes, slice against the grain of the meat in 1/2 inch slices.  Serves 4

We like to eat this with large portions of fresh steamed broccoli and baked or grilled spiced sweet potatoes.  Left overs are used in burritos with pico de gallo! 🙂
