Cumin Spiced Beef

Dinner tonight was just too good for me to not share. As the weather warms, I’ll be using my grill to cook a LOT. This spicy meat gets an additional flavor kick from cooking on the grill. If you don’t want to fire up your grill (or, if you’re one of the unfortunate folks who doesn’t have one), this recipe works just fine on the stove top in a super hot skillet (preferably cast iron). 

Delicious and simple, that’s my motto. Just mix up the spices, rub them on a London broil and toss it on the grill. Cook it for 3-5 minutes per side, depending on thickness and desired doneness.  Then, pull it off, let it rest and slice thinly across the grain. Serve it up next to a nice green salad or in a warm tortilla. 


1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon chile powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 pound London broil

Prepare grill or skillet for cooking over high heat. 

In a small dish, stir together cumin, chile powder, salt, onion powder, garlic powder and black pepper. Rub spices over all sides of London broil. Cook over high heat for 3-5 minutes per side depending on thickness and desired doneness. Remove meat from heat and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Slice thinly across the grain and serve. 
*This recipe can be easily multiplied to accommodate larger cuts of meat. Or, spice mix can be made in advance and used as needed.
