  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon cumin

  • ½ teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 (1 1/2-pound) flank steak


  1. Combine olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, and chili powder in a small bowl to make a paste. Rub 1/2 of the paste on each side of the flank steak and wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

  2. Preheat a gas grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  3. Sear the steak for 3 minutes, turning counter-clockwise once after 1 1/2 minutes to create grill marks. Flip steak over and sear an additional 3 minutes. Reduce flame to medium-high and continue to cook 5 minutes more for medium-well, or until desired temperature.

  4. Remove steak from grill and let rest 10 minutes before slicing.
