Brown Sugar Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Add a sweet flavor to your regular steak rub with the addition of brown sugar. Dip your brown sugar steak in chimichurri sauce for the ultimate combination.

Now and then, Justin gets the craving for a nice, delicious steak! When that happens, we start to keep an eye out for meat that’s on sale at the grocery store. We have a few tried and true steak recipes, but wanted to go for something different. I love our brown-sugar glazed pork, so we decided to try a brown sugar steak this time!

And let me tell you, it was delicious! The sweet taste of the brown sugar compliments the meat well. Then I made a green chimichurri sauce to accompany the steak. It’s always fun to have something to dip.

You can use almost any cut of steak for this meal. We used a T-bone since that’s what we found on sale. A flank steak would also work for this meal. The cut of meat you choose will depend on your personal preference for how fatty you like meat. According to Justin, the more fat, the more flavor. But, personally, I can’t stand chewing fat in meat, so I always want the leanest cut available.

If you decide to add a chimichurri sauce on the side, you can see my recipe HERE. It’s very easy to make and doesn’t take a lot of time. You can put that together while the steaks are cooking.

Step by Step

Rinse the steak and pat it dry. In a small bowl, whisk the salt, paprika, brown sugar, and pepper to create a rub.

Sprinkle half of the rub on the steak and pat so it sticks. Flip the steak over and pat the other half of the rub into the steak.

Let the steak sit at room temperature while you heat the grill to medium. Then grill the steak with the lid closed for about 8-10 minutes per side for medium doneness. Let the steak rest for 5 minutes before cutting into strips and serve with the chimichurri sauce if desired.
