Cacao-Chili Rubbed Hanger Steak
Serves: 6-8 servings
  • 1 (2-pound) hanger steak
  • 3 tablespoons Cacao-Chili Rub (recipe follows)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Tortillas, guacamole, pico de gallo, and pickled onions, to serve
  1. Place steak on a plate, and season all over with Cacao-Chili Rub. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°.
  3. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil. Sear steak on both sides until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 135°. (Steak will be medium rare.) If steak is not up to temperature before outside is browned, place in oven for 10 minutes or until it reaches 135°. Remove from skillet; let steak rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with tortillas, guacamole, pico de gallo, and pickled onions.
