Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Slice the steak across the grain 1/4 inch thick; pound the slices 1/8 inch thick.

  • In a bowl, combine the sugar, salt, cayenne and black pepper. Brush both sides of the beef slices with the lime juice and sprinkle with the spices. Stack the slices and refrigerate overnight.

  • Preheat a cast-iron skillet. Lightly brush the pan with oil, add the steak in a single layer and cook in batches over high heat until medium rare and slightly charred, about 30 seconds per side. Serve at once with Garlic Rice.
