Flat Iron, Grilled
This recipe yields a spice rub that can be used to season flat iron steaks before they are grilled or baked to the desired tenderness.
Steaks should be spread out on a platter and given about 30 minutes to reach room temperature.
Set an outdoor grill to high heat and give the grates a quick oiling.
Set oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees C).
In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, brown sugar, and lemon juice.
Apply the mixture evenly to one side of each steak.
For two minutes, place the steaks on the hot grill with the seasoned side facing up.
For about two minutes, flip the prepared side and sear it.
Transfer steaks to the oven and cook for 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well, or until desired doneness.
3 to 4 minutes of rest is required before serving.
