Five-Spice Round Steak 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.

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.
