How to Make It
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Combine first 4 ingredients; rub evenly over both sides of steak. Let steak stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.
Combine mango and next 5 ingredients (through dash of salt); cover and chill.
Lightly coat both sides of steak with cooking spray. Place steak on grill rack; grill 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove steak from grill; let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Serve with salsa.

This was an amazing dish.....although I made it with top sirloin since they were out of flank steak! The salsa was outstanding and would be good on just about anything. Will definitely make again-soon!
Subbed cayenne pepper for black, rubbed the beef then lightly spritzed with oil. Cheated and bought garlic naan rather than plain -- the grilled bread was terrific with the steak & mango. Served green salad with sweet vinaigrette after the main course. Very good.
The rub on the flank steak really tenderized the meat. This was one of the most tender flank steak recipes I've made. My family raved. The kids liked the garam masala in the rub.
We made the recipe as is, but let the rub stay on the steak longer than suggested.
