I bought some flank steak and was going to just salt, pepper and throw garlic on it but then I was inspired seeing my friend make dinner one evening. She was grating ginger into some soy sauce for a marinade. It smelled really good! Too bad she didn’t invite me for dinner. 🙂 I built on that idea, did a little research, then created an Asian-Inspired Marinade for my flank steak*. My kids ate this up! I was really shocked because my kids are not beef eaters.
(*This marinade works on other beef cuts, ribs, chicken, pork, fish, tofu etc..)
- 1/2 cup of low-sodium soy sauce
- 2 T of honey (or agave nectar)
- a juice of 1 lime
- 1 T of olive oil
- 1 T of sesame oil
- 1 T of chopped garlic
- 1 T of chopped green onions
- 1 tsp of grated ginger (fresh)
- 1/2 tsp of black pepper
- 1-1/2 pounds of beef flank steak
- Combine all the ingredients into a bowl.
- Coat the steak with the marinade, cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours (the longer the better!)
- Grill for 7-8 minutes per side (for medium rare).
Serve with steamed broccoli with a touch of sesame oil or sautéed mushrooms for a delicious low-carb meal. So yummy! If you have any leftovers, this would be perfect as a steak salad for lunch the next day. Toss it with my Sesame Vinaigrette dressing.
