Coffee and Brown Sugar-Crusted Skirt Steak
This spice mix is a great go to rub for the grill - it tastes equally great on pork chops, rack of lamb, and a filet of salmon.
|1/4 cup||finely ground espresso coffee (not instant)|
|1/4 cup||dark brown sugar, firmly packed|
|1 1/2 teaspoons||Kosher salt|
|1/8 teaspoon||ground cinnamon|
|1/8 teaspoon||Kosher ginger|
|1/8 teaspoon||ground white pepper|
|1/8 teaspoon||five-spice powder|
|pinch cayenne pepper|
|2 1/2 pounds||skirt beef steaks, cut into 4 pieces|
|1 tablespoon||olive oil|
Heat grill to high.
Combine coffee, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, white pepper, five-spice powder, and cayenne pepper in a bowl.
Remove steak from refrigerator and let come to room temperature, about 15 minutes. Rub steak with oil, and sprinkle with rub. Massage rub into meat.
Grill until charred and medium-rare, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board, cover with foil and let rest 5 minutes before thinly slicing at an angle. Serve immediately.
