Caribbean Jerk Steak

This is a really easy and very tasty recipe to spice up your steak life.  :)  I got the recipe from Cosmopolitan Primal Girl.  We made it for the first time and had some friends over to test it out.  They seemed to like it as much as we did.  I will warn you, though, it is a bit spicy.  I am a huge fan of spicy food and thought it was the perfect amount of spice.  The husband of the couple we invited over thought it was so spicy that it may have burned a hole through the plate.  Hee hee.  The leftovers are perfect for breakfast, over a salad, or even as a snack.  

Caribbean Jerk Steak
1 lb. flank steak
1/2 T. of: onion powder, garlic powder, allspice, coriander
1 T. thyme
1 t. of: nutmeg, cinnamon, chipotle chili powder, cayenne pepper
3 T. fresh lime juice
1 T. olive oil
1 T. tamari sauce
fresh ground pepper
Combine all ingredients, except steak, in a bowl and mix.  Rub onto steak and marinate in a sealed bag in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.  Bring steak out of fridge for 30 minutes before grilling.  Grill on high heat for 2-3 minutes per side (depending on thickness and how rare you want it).  Remove from grill and tent foil over the meat and let it rest for 5 minutes.  Slice into thin pieces and serve.
