Chinese Five Spice Flank Steak with Grilled Peppers

1 lb flank steak, trimmed of any visible fat
2 tsp olive oil, divided
salt and pepper
1 tsp Chinese five spice powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1/4 c fresh cilantro leaves
Heat a grill or grill pan to medium high heat. Coat both sides of steak with one teaspoon oil and season with salt and pepper. In a small bowl combine five spice powder, cumin, and garlic powder. Rub spice mixture on both sides of steak.
Place steak on grill or grill pan and cook, turning once, for about 2 minutes per side for medium doneness. Remove steak from heat and let rest for at least 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, toss bell peppers with remaining one teaspoon oil and season with salt and pepper. Add bell peppers to grill or grill pan and cook on medium high until slightly soft, two minutes per side. (if using grill pan, wipe clean with a paper towel first)
 Transfer steak to a cutting board and thinly slice against the grain. To serve, place bell peppers on a plate, arrange steak on top, and garnish with cilantro.
