Jamaican Jerk Steak

Jamaicans have a lot of red pole cows in the country. Although Beef is really more of a delicacy, Jamaicans do enjoy a variety of beef dishes. Yes, anything can be jerked. Here is a Jerk Steak recipe. The combination of the allspice, cloves and other ingredients make up the Jerk seasoning.

  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 2 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 2 1/2 pounds flank steak
  • Salt and pepper

Preheat grill, grill pan or broiler. Coat a grill, large baking sheet or shallow roasting pan with cooking spray.

In a shallow dish, whisk together vinegar, sugar, allspice, cloves, basil, thyme, hot sauce, salt, and pepper. Add flank steak and turn to coat (you may marinate up to 24 hours at this point).

Transfer flank steak to prepared pan and pour over any remaining marinade. Grill or broil 5 minutes per side, until medium-rare. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing crosswise into thin slices. This can be served with Rice and Peas or plain white rice. (add some fried plantains for real island flavor).
