      Finely grind toasted mixture in an electric coffee/spice grinder or with a mortar and pestle (I use my mini food processor).

      Sift mixture through a small strainer into a bowl and stir in salt, five-spice powder, and ginger.
    9. 9

      Roast in middle of oven 25 to 35 minutes.
    15. 15
      Let beef stand in pan on a rack for 25 minutes.
    16. 16
      Beef will continue to cook as it stands.
    17. 17

    18. 18
