Sichuan peppercorns add intense bold flavor to these grilled flank steaks in this simple Asian-inspired dinner.


  • 1-1/2 tablespoons Sichuan peppercorns
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons Chinese black bean garlic sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3 1-1/4-pound flank steaks
  • Sea salt


  1. Place the peppercorns in a small sauté pan over medium heat and toast for 30 seconds. Transfer the peppercorns to a spice grinder, or a mortar and pestle, and process until they become a fine powder. Place the powder in a bowl along with the wine, black bean garlic sauce and sugar and whisk vigorously to blend.
  2. Preheat a grill on medium heat.
  3. Rub the steaks with the peppercorn sauce and let stand for 10 minutes at room temperature.
  4. Place the steaks onto the grill and cook for 8 minutes, flipping once halfway through the cooking time. Let the steaks rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
