Ginger and Garlic Marinated Steak

It’s time for a change. Time to make some updates.  

Out with the old and in with the new.

But before all of this went away, I made one more meal in my old kitchen and it did not disappoint me at all. 

I adapted this from a recipe that I had found on Real Simple. The flavors were remarkable and I ate so much that my belly felt like it had just devoured a Thanksgiving dinner. Next time around, I may try all of this on the grill.

Here’s the link to the original and below is my version.

I increased the dressing amount below. In the future, I will skip the pickled carrots, add more vegetables and stir-fry them in a little of the sauce.  Serve this with Soba noodles and drizzle with any remaining dressing.

Ginger and Garlic Marinated Steak
Serves 4

2/3 C. Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
1 ½ Tbl. Grated Fresh Ginger
3-4 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 Tbl. Red Pepper Flakes (less if desired)
6 Tbl. Rice Vinegar
6 Tbl. Brown Sugar
¼ C. Canola Oil
1 ½ lb. Flank Steak
Handful of chopped Fresh Cilantro

In a medium bowl, mix together the first 7 ingredients with a fork or whisk.
Pour half of the dressing into a sealable bag or shallow dish and add the steak. Refrigerate for about 4 hours or up to 12 hours, turning once.
Pull the meat from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before cooking. Turn the broiler to high, cover a broiler pan with cooking spray and broiler on one side for 5-6 minutes. Turn and broiler another 5-6 minutes until desired doneness. Remove and tent with foil and rest 10 minutes.
Slice and serve with vegetable, noodles and remaining dressing. Top with Cilantro.
