Chuck steak with hoisin and sesame glaze

Ok, it’s been a while. This time of the year you don’t get many chances to barbecue. And afterall, I live in rainy Sweden. But here’s a damn good one! It’s an asian inspired beef chuck steak at it’s best. Tender as hell and exploding with flavours.

INGREDIENTS (~4 servings)

  • 1 tbsp Dried Cilantro Powder
  • 1 tbsp Cayenne Pepper Powder
  • 1 tbsp Cumin Powder
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1.5 cup (ca 3.5 dl) Hoisin Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Roasted Sesame Seeds
  • 1/2 Lime
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 tsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 inch Dried Bitter Orange Peel
  • 1.8 lb (ca 800 g) Chuck Steak

PREPARING THE GLAZE

  1. Put hoisin sauce, juice of 1/2 lime, garlic, brown sugar and the bitter orange peel in a small saucepan. 
  2. Let it come to a boil and quickly remove it from the stove.
  3. Then let the glaze rest for a while before removing the bitter orange peel and the rest of the garlic.
  4. Add the roasted sesame seeds. If you only find unroasted sesame seeds, put them in a dry pan and roast until they get a nice brown color.
  5. Stir gently.

PREPARING THE RUB

  1. Put dried cilantro, cayenne pepper, cumin powder and salt in a bowl.
  2. Mix well.

PREPARING THE MEAT

  1. Rub the chuck steak with the spicy rub mix.
  2. Put the steak on the grill and cook on low heat for about 4 hours. Aim for about 250°F (or ca 120°C).
  3. Brush the steak with the glaze now and then. Use about half of the glaze for brushing the steak while grilling and keep the rest of the glaze for serving. I grilled the meat for 1 hour before started brushing the meat with the glaze.
  4. Remove the steak after about 4 hours on the grill.
  5. Slice the steak into thin slices and drizzle the rest of the glaze on the meat.

Serve with rice or noodles and vegetables of your choice, for example a fresh salad or stir-fried mixed vegetables. Enjoy!
