DIRECTIONS:

For the tomato Jam–

Saute ginger and garlic in olive oil medium-low heat until soft (about five minutes).

Stir in tomatoes, lemon juice, brown sugar, cinnamon stick, cumin, red pepper flakes. Simmer until juices have evaporated (35-40 minutes) stirring often.

For the Steak–

Preheat grill to high. Combine ingredients for the rub. Coat flank steak thoroughly with rub. Bush grates of grill with vegetable oil. Please steak on grill, cover, and grill for 2 1/2 minutes. Flip steak and grill for another 2 1/2 minutes. Repeat procedure two more times. This keeps juices centered in the meat. Allow meat to rest 10 minutes. Slice against the grain with the knife at a steep angle— this will result in wider slices.
