Grilled Flatiron Steak with Gullah Seasoning

Gullah, or Geechee, refers to the Creole culture of slaves in the coastal region from southern North Carolina to northern Florida. Present day Gullah culture is essentially restricted to the South Carolina and Georgia Low Country and Sea Islands. There is no single recipe for Gullah seasoning, but they share a common list of seasonings – black pepper, paprika, celery salt, and mace. Although allspice is often substituted for the less common mace. This recipe has added brown sugar to enhance browning because of the thin cut of meat.

1 flatiron steak

Olive oil for brushing

Salt to taste

Prepare the Gullah Seasoning (recipe follows). Prepare the grill for very hot direct (600°F) cooking. Brush the meat with oil and season heavily with Gullah Seasoning. The season is mild and requires a fair amount. Season the meat to taste with salt. This cut of meat is thin and must be quickly cooked to achieve a sear without over cooking. Cook directly over the fire for 2 1/2 minutes per side, lid closed. Slice thinly perpendicular to the grain of the meat.

Gullah Seasoning

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon allspice

1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
