Cumin-Chili Spiced Flank Steak
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Cook: 15 min.
This made a wonderful, tasty dinner. I substituted spicy green rice for couscous (recipe is from Jan 2014 Southern Living mag). Because the rice has a lot of jalapeno in it, I omitted the jalapenos from this recipe. Be sure to read the recipe thoroughly before starting. One thing I would do differently is chop up the onion (and jalapenos if used) beforehand and broil them separately from other veggies. It's difficult and messy to separate and chop the onions (and jalapenos if used) after broiling with the other vegetables. I did not broil the grape tomatoes (just a personal preference--don't care for the texture) but did cut them into quarters before adding the onions (and jalapenos) to prepare salsa. Like I said, be sure to read the recipe carefully and think of ways to simplify the steps. Next time I will grill the steak on the BBQ and broil veggies at the same time to speed things up. Also, I will add onion and garlic powder to the rub. All that being said, this is a very tasty recipe that I will make again!
