  • 2 tsp. ground cumin, divided
  • 4 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1  tsp. red pepper flakes

Preheat oven to 425 °F. Pat chickpeas dry with a paper towel. Toss peas, olive oil, salt and 1 tsp. cumin in a jelly roll pan. Bake for 25 minutes. Add shallots and toss with peas. Bake 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until peas are crisp but still tender.

Meanwhile coat steak with 2 tsp. olive oil. Sprinkle with 1 tsp. salt and remaining cumin. Let stand 20 minutes. Heat a grill skillet or grill to medium-high heat. Place steak on grill and cover with grill lid. Grill 8 minutes, turn steak. Grill about 5 minutes or until desired degree of doneness is reached. Let stand 5 minutes.
