I've used wine here because alcohol frees up every possible nuance of taste not touched by the honey. If possible, use beef raised on vegetarian feed, ideally grass-fed and organic.
Classic with this would be a wedge of iceberg with homemade bleu cheese dressing and either potato salad, or little new potatoes, foil wrapped and baked in the coals. Pour a fruity Zinfandel.
2. Heat the grill, or burn wood charcoal (instead of regular briquettes) until a gray ash forms. You want two piles of coals on either side of an empty center.
3. Pat steak dry, place over hottest part of grill. Sear quickly on both sides. Move to where there's lower heat and cook, turning often, 10 minutes, or until steak reaches an internal temperature of 125° to 130° (for medium rare). Remove to a platter and let rest 5 to 10 minutes. The steak finishes cooking, collects itself and is much juicier for the wait. Serve steaks whole or sliced.
When Marvin Gapultos had a craving for adobo but didn’t know how to make it, he decided to learn his family’s recipes. Since then, he has shared the flavors of Filipino food through his Los Angeles-based food truck The Manila Machine, on his blog Burnt Lumpia, and in The Adobo Road Cookbook.
