Flank steak is lean and very flavorful, but not particularly tender. It is best served cut into thin strips.
Asian-Flavored Flank Steak
1/2 cup chopped scallions
3 minced garlic cloves
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 pound flank steak
Coat broiler pan with cooking spray.
Combine scallions, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, honey and rice vinegar in a baking dish large enough to hold the flank steak. Whisk until the honey is dissolved. Place the meat in the marinade for 5 minutes; turn, and let it sit 5 minutes.
Transfer the steak to the broiler pan, and place under the broiler for 5-6 minutes on each side, or until cooked through to desired degree of doneness. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes.
While the steak is cooking, pour the marinade into a small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Boil for 3-5 minutes (to kill harmful bacteria).
Cut meat across the grain on the diagonal into very thin slices. Drizzle with sauce. Makes 4 servings.
