Marinated Flank Steak with Sweet-Hot Slaw
This Asian marinade works really well with flank or skirt steak. Add this one to your grilling collection.
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
- One 1-inch piece ginger, sliced
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Tamari (dark soy sauce)
- 2 teaspoons cumin
- 1 pound napa cabbage, shredded
- 2 bell peppers in varied colors, thinly sliced
- 1 red jalapeño chile or Thai chile, finely chopped
- 2 pounds flank steak
- Grill seasoning
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
- Juice of 2 limes
In a small saucepan, dissolve 2 tablespoons sugar in the vinegar over low heat. Stir in the ginger and garlic. Transfer to a bowl and add 2 tablespoons tamari and 1/2 teaspoon cumin. Let stand for 2 minutes, then discard the ginger and garlic. Add the cabbage, bell peppers and jalapeño; toss.
Pre-heat a grill or grill pan to high.
Season the steak with grill seasoning. In a shallow dish, combine the remaining 1/4 cup Tamari, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin, the EVOO and lime juice. Add the steak, turn and let marinate for 10 minutes.
Grill the steak, turning twice, about 12 minutes for medium-rare. Let rest for 5 minutes, then thinly slice against the grain and serve with the slaw.
