My husband and I made this using flank steak tonight and loved it. The combination of the sweet brown sugar and the smoky kick of the chipotle powder was fabulous. Will definitely make it again!

We found this WAY too sweet, although we don't eat a lot of sugar. I don't think I'll make this again, but if I did I would use less sugar. (I used ancho chili powder instead of chipotle chili powder because we don't like chipotle flavor and it's what I had on hand, so maybe that made a difference. Still seems like it would have been too sweet though.)

One of the best grilled steaks I've ever made. The spicy steak wrapped with a bite of tortilla is super delicious. Definitely be making again!

Wow, wow this is excellent! The rub is a wonderful sweet-smoky combination with just a little heat; paired with this very tender cut of meat--it's perfect! My husband raved that I need to make this again when his parents come to town next weekend. We served it over salad greens with crumbled blue cheese, tomatoes, etc., but looking back, I would serve it on its own next time to really savor the flavor of the rub. Will definitely make again!

Prepared just as directed. It was very good. Tortillas are unnecessary and add nothing.

This was okay. The spice rub was pretty good.
