What’s For Dinner: Grilled Flank Steak
Flank steak is a cheaper cut of meat that is great for the cottage – it feeds a lot of people, takes little preparation and cooks up quickly! We like to marinate the meat at home (so we don’t have to bring all the spices up to the cottage) and can leave it for a few days before cooking. Don’t be afraid of what you’ve heard about flank steak, with a little time marinating, it can be incredibly flavourful and tender.
This recipe is perfect for someone who wants to make one meal and use it in different ways. This is inspired by my love of spicy food and Asian fusion.
Grilled Flank Steak
1 Flank Steak (around 2 pounds will feed a family of 4)
2 Tbs Soya Sauce (we use low sodium)
1/2 Tbs Sesame Oil
2 Tsp Chili Garlic Sauce (use more or less depending on how spicy your family likes it)
Salt to taste
Step 1: Put steak in zip lock bag. Add the soya sauce, sesame oil and chili garlic sauce. Massage the ingredients into the steak, covering it with sauce. Refrigerate overnight.
Step 2: Grill for 5-7 minutes per side for medium rare, depending on thickness. Set the steak aside to rest for 5-10 minutes.
Step 3: Slice the steak thinly on the bias across the grain.
You can eat the sliced steak with salad, put it in a wrap with grilled veggies, or serve it with a baked potato.
We decided to eat it with rice noodles, bok choy and edamame.
