Chipotle Broiled Steak with Szechuan Green Beans

Last night's dinner (and today's lunch) was so delicious I just had to share. Wish I could say that I made it, but nope...the babe did. He is the chef in the house (and I am not ashamed, ha, I'm totally okay with doing the dishes). Sorry for the horrible photo and lack of more pretty detailed photos of the ingredients and such, but you get the idea. This smelled too good to wait for pretty pictures to be taken.

Chipotle Broiled Steak

2 6-8 oz round steaks (filet, eye of round, or chuck steak)

Steak Rub

- 4 tbsp paprika

- 2 tbsp ground cumin
