Ancho Chile – Rubbed Flank Steak

This Mexican recipe was given to me by a friend. I liked it  a lot because it’s different and super yummy. I prepare it when I am hosting because I show off with it – it ends up being really tasty and full of flavor.

The Ancho Chile powder has a smokey flavor, much more than regular chile powder, and is a pantry must-have for Southwestern food lovers.  This simple rub adds tons of flavor to the steak and also gives it a nicely caramelized crust. Serve with roasted potato  wedges, or for a more Mexican feel, rice and beans.les doy un tip ?

Prepare in a Crock Pot if you have one, to achieve a tender finish. Warm corn or flour tortillas. You can make small burritos with them and serve them at a party with friends.


  •  (1-pound) flank steak, trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ancho chile powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Dash of freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil


  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl; rub evenly over both sides of steak.
