2-4 lb flank steak

For Marinade:

2 Tbsp Creole seasoning (recipe below) or store bought favorite
1 tsp ground pepper
2 Tbsp brown sugar
3 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1/2 cup dry sherry or red wine

Add all marinade ingredients into a zip lock baggie and shake to mix, add the flank steak and marinate for at least five but no more that twelve hours in the refrigerator.

Creole Seasoning:

2 Tbsp onion powder
1 Tbsp dried oregano,
1 Tbsp dried thyme
1/2 to 1 Tbsp cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp black pepper
1 Tbsp white pepper
2 Tbsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp sea salt
2-3 Tbsp paprika


When ready to grill, remove the steak from the fridge about two hours before grilling to allow to come to room temperature. Place the marinade in a saucepan on the stove and bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer and cook until reduced to about half.

Preheat the grill to the hotter side and place steak on grill, cook 9 to 12 minutes turning only once, or until the meat reaches 120 degrees. Remove to a cutting board and let rest for five minutes. To serve, cut the steak across the grain in 1/4 inch thick slices and serve with reduced marinade.
