At the restaurant, Mark Sullivan marinates bavette (flank steak) in a blend of 12 Moroccan spices. At home, you can replace the bavette with juicy hanger steak, which is less expensive. Skip the spice blend; instead, boost the flavor of the meat by marinating it in garlic, cumin and olive oil.

Servings: 4
Prep Time: 1 hr 15 mins
Total Time: 1 hr 45 mins
  •    garlic cloves, minced
  •  tablespoon  ground cumin
  •     Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2  cup  extra-virgin olive oil
  •  2-pound  hanger steak
  • 1 1/2  cups  bulgur (9 ounces), rinsed
  • 1/4  teaspoon  cinnamon
  • 1 1/2  cups  boiling water
  •  tablespoon  unsalted butter
  • 1/2    large white onion, chopped
  •    carrots, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  •    turnip (8 ounces), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2  cup  chicken stock
  • 1 1/2  tablespoons  fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2  cup  chopped flat-leaf parsley
  •  tablespoons  chopped mint
Preheat the oven to 350. In a small bowl, mash the garlic, cumin, 1 tablespoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper with 2 tablespoons of the oil; rub all over the steak. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, in a medium baking dish, mix the bulgur and cinnamon. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the oil and the boiling water and season with salt and pepper. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 20 minutes, until the water is completely absorbed. Fluff the bulgur with a fork, then cover and keep warm.
In a large saucepan, melt the butter in 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat until barely softened, about 2 minutes. Add the carrots and turnip, season with salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes, until just softened. Add the stock and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat until the vegetables are tender, 10 minutes. Stir the vegetables and liquid into the bulgur with the lemon juice, parsley, mint and 2 tablespoons of the oil.
In an ovenproof skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and swirl to coat the pan. Add the steak and cook over high heat, turning once, until browned, 8 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast for 25 minutes, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 135. Transfer the steak to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Thinly slice the steak and serve with the bulgur.
