  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon Hungarian paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 pound skirt steak, trimmed

  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 2 medium carrots, shredded
  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage

Instructions

For the rub:

  1. In a small bowl combine the cumin, chili powder, brown sugar, salt, paprika, and cloves.

To cook the steak:

Recipe Notes

ALTERNATE COOKING INFORMATION:

You can prepare this steak in a grill pan, as well. Cook for the same amount of time (adjusting for desired level of doneness) and be sure to coat the pan lightly with vegetable oil before cooking.
