Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Spice Rubbed Flank Steak

A tasty way to prepare a piece of meat or fish is to use a spice rub, and it couldn’t be any easier.  No matter what spices I use I always start with about a one to five mixture of salt to sugar depending on how much rub I need.  As I was only grilling a steak flank last night it worked out to about a half teaspoon of salt to one and a half tablespoons of sugar.  I was thinking Mexican so in addition I mixed in a tablespoon of chili powder and a few pinches of cayenne pepper.  I dusted both sides of the flank steak then rubbed it in with my hands making sure that the surface of the meat was completely covered with the spice mix.  That’s it, not even any need to prepare in advance.  I served the sliced steak with my favorite salsa verde and roasted cauliflower that I rubbed with some cumin powder, celery seed, and salt after tossing with a little bit of olive oil.  No need for the sugar on the veggies.  Happy Grillin’!
