Spice Rubbed Flank Steak

This flank steak was inspired by Mexican flavors for Cinco de Mayo tomorrow. The process of preparing and cooking of this flank steak is incredibly easy. You can make a fast spice rub and coat the steak early in the day, and when you pull it out just before dinner it will be packed with flavor!

A quick broil is all it will take to have that steak ready for dinner. I accompany the steak with all of the fixings for fajitas, and serve it family style so that everyone can help themselves!

If you are planning a Cinco de Mayo dinner, here are some recipes from the archives that may help round out your menu!

    Holy cow, that sauce looks SASSY!!!! My hnabsud has been to Yemen and I’ll be that he ate a lot of that sauce since he never got sick there. The peppers would kill off all the bacteria.
