Five-Spice Round Steak

Author: Canadian Living

Tender and juicy, this steak has the addition of a flavourful marinade that glazes the meat. Chinese five-spice powder (a mixture of cinnamon, cloves, fennel, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns) is available in the spice section of the supermarket. If you can't find it, use a pinch each of pepper, cinnamon and cloves instead.

Ingredients

  • 1 inside round steak 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick (about 2 lb/1 kg)
  • 1 marinating steak 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick (about 2 lb/1 kg)
Marinade:
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced gingerroot
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Method

Marinade: In large shallow glass dish, whisk together hoisin sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger, five-spice powder and salt. With fork, prick steak several times on each side; add to marinade and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate, turning once, for 12 hours. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Reserving marinade, place steak on greased grill over medium-high heat; brush generously with marinade. Discard remaining marinade. Close lid and grill until desired doneness, about 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to cutting board; tent with foil and let stand for 5 minutes. Thinly slice diagonally across the grain.
