Even though we spent the better part of this weekend engaged in packing up our belongings for our “big move across town” in the next three weeks….. we still made time to grill outside! Sure, the weather was a crisp 29 degrees with a few snowflakes in the air- but we had grilling on our minds anyway! Now I love a good marinated steak recipe, because you simply mix up the marinade in the morning, pour it over the cut of beef, and then a half an hour before dinner, you grill. It is simple and so delicious. So here’s our family recipe for Asian Style Flank Steak:
Asian Style Flank Steak
The marinade:1/4 cup of soy sauce 1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice 1 Tablespoon of fresh ginger (or sometimes I use the minced ginger that you find in a jar in the produce section of the grocery store)
Mix together in a small bowl.
Take out your flank steak and place it into a large (gallon-sized) Ziplock bag. Pour the marinade over the steak, zip up the bag, and then turn the bag over a few times to be sure that all of the meat is soaking in the marinade. Place the Ziplock bag into a large bowl (in case the bag leaks!) and put in the fridge.I do this in morning- so it marinates all day.
Grill over medium high heat.
While the meat is cooking, I will take the marinade that was leftover in the Ziplock bag, and put it into a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
To serve, slice the meat diagonally across the grain into nice thin strips. Serve with the marinade (that has been boiled) and some steamed white rice and veggies.
