Juicy Hanger Steak

I used the leftover BBQ sauce (see previous recipe) to marinate a beautiful cut of hanger steak from the Ginger Pig. To prepare:

  • Preheat the oven to 250 F (Gas mark 1-2)
  • Coat a grill pan with a bit of olive oil and heat to a very VERY high, smoking heat
  • Sear each side of the steak for 1 minute - 90 seconds
  • Place the steak in the oven for 10 minutes
  • Let the steak sit for 3-5 minutes - then Enjoy!

Barbecue Sauce

1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 small onion, diced (1 cup)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1.5 teaspoons Raul's rub
1 teaspoon sazon completa
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 tablespoon finely grated ginger
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup tomato paste
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup fresh orange juice

    Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat, and saute the onions and garlic for 5 to 7 minutes, until the onions are translucent but not browned. Add the spices and continue cooking for 1 minute. Add the zest and ginger and cook for an additional minute. Add the vinegar, tomato paste, honey, mustard, soy sauce and orange juice and simmer uncovered on low heat for 15 minutes, until thick.
