¼ cup olive oil
2 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon Ancho chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon salt
Pinch ground black pepper
4 pounds flank steak
In a large re-sealable plastic bag, combine vinegar, cocoa, brown sugar, olive oil, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Add flank steak; seal bag, and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours or overnight.
Remove steak from marinade and discard marinade. Place steak on the griddle and cook for 6 minutes on each side for a medium-rare. When cooked to desired doneness, remove from the griddle, to a cutting board, and let rest for few minutes. Cut steak across the grain into thin strips. Serve with Pineapple Salsa and garnish with chopped cilantro, if desired.
