Tuesday Night Recipe

Spice-Crusted Steak with Mashed Chickpeas

45 minutes

When grinding the cumin seed and fennel seed, make sure to keep them coarse—don't pulverize them to a powder. We liked the flavor and texture of flat-iron steak, but if you can't find this cut, hanger steak or sirloin steak tips (aka flap meat) are good substitutions. Plain yogurt and warmed pita bread are the perfect accompaniments to this dish.
