- crushed pink pepper
- fleur de sel to taste
1.Mix the molasses, beer and shallots.
2. Marinate the flank steak for a period of 3 to 4 hours (or even overnight for better maceration).
3.Remove the excess marinade on each flank steak using a kitchen knife, sprinkle with ground coffee and pink pepper and leave at room temperature for a period of 45 min.
4.Grill on the BBQ or a cast iron pan for 3 min on each side over medium high heat for optimal cooking (medium rare).
