Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

3 tablespoons 45mlExtra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSalt
2   Garlic cloves - minced
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlCoarsely-ground black pepper
1   Flank steak - (abt 2 1/2 lbs)
  = (can use a sirloin steak)
  Cumin Aioli
1 tablespoon 15mlCumin seeds
1 tablespoon 15mlEgg (large)
1 teaspoon 5mlDijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSalt
1   Garlic clove - minced
1/2 cup 118mlVegetable oil
1/2 cup 118mlOlive oil
4 teaspoons 20mlLemon juice

Recipe Instructions

Mix the olive oil, salt, garlic and black pepper together in a small bowl. Spread on both sides of the steak. Cover and refrigerate.

Dry-roast the cumin seeds in a small frying pan over medium heat until they darken a shade. Remove from the heat. Finely grind half of the cumin seeds in a spice or coffee grinder.

In a blender or food processor, combine the egg, Dijon mustard, salt, garlic and the finely ground cumin seeds. With the motor on, add half of the oils in a slow steady stream. Add the lemon juice and continue adding the rest of the oil until the aioli is emulsified. If the mixture seems too thick, add a spoonful or two of water. Scrape the aioli into a bowl and stir in the whole cumin seeds.

Preheat the barbecue or broiler to high. Grill or broil the steak, 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Remove the steak from the heat and let it rest for a few minutes. Slice very thinly across the grain and serve with the Cumin Aioli on the side.
