Oven Roasted Hawaiian Coffee BBQ Flank Steak Recipe
This steak is bursting with flavor. I personally am not a coffee drinker. Caffeine does not agree with me. But I love to cook with coffee. I have made chili with coffee and it is amazing. I am so glad I decided to try it on flank steak. The Kona Coffee BBQ rub has a beautiful rich color and its aroma will greet you as soon as you break the seal on the package.
What is Flank Steak?
I enjoy eating flank steak because it cooks quickly. This thin piece of meat comes from the side of the cow, under the ribs. It tastes great on salad and in Mexican dishes like burritos and fajitas. There are many ways to cook flank steak, including:
- Oven broiling
- Stove top skillet
- Stir frying
Flank steak is best when cooked to medium rare or medium, as it continues to cook for a few minutes after you remove it from the heat source and you want it to remain tender. With flank steak, you want to cut against the grain and you will get beautiful slices of meat.
