It's delicious grilled onto flank steak, but will work equally well on pork tenderloin or beef brisket. Teresa Blackburn PrintEmail Ingredients 1 tablespoon cocoa1 tablespoon chili powder1 tablespoon espressor powder1 tablespoon brown sugar1 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic1/2 teaspoon onion powder1/4 teaspoon cayenne1 pound flank steak Olive oil Instructions Whisk all ingredients, except steak, in a bowl. Gently score the surface of a flank steak. Coat the entire surface with olive oil. Sprinkle spice rub liberally over both sides of the meat. Cover and refrigerate until you are ready to grill. This may be done ahead of time—even overnight—to allow flavors to permeate the meat. Grill steak over medium-hot coals until done to the desired degree.
