I want to give you an easy quick dinner recipe that is elegant and very tasty! I made dinner for a dear friend and her family last night and I made this recipe because it is something that most people will eat. You could say it is “kid friendly” but also “picky people friendly”.
Our friends have a new baby and they have a 19 month old and a “picky person”. This is a recipe that all of them could eat. (Not the newborn of course)
It is called “Spicy Flank Steak” but you can make it as spicy or not spicy at all. That’s part of the reason that makes it a palate pleas-er. We like spicy at our house so I bump up the red pepper flakes but people who don’t like spice just back down on the red pepper flakes.
Spicy Flank Steak:
One 2 to 3 lb. Flank Steak
½ cup soy sauce
½ cup brown sugar
2 TBS of spicy sesame oil (Use regular sesame oil for less spice)
4 good size fresh garlic cloves minced
2 TBS of fresh ginger peeled and shredded with lemon zester or cheese shredder
1 TBS of red pepper flakes (use less if you want it less hot)
Use a small bowl and add all ingredients together to make marinate. Use a 9×13 dish for the meat and cover with marinate. Marinate for at least 3 hours. You can even mix this up a day before and marinate the meat overnight in the refrigerator. After removing the meat save marinate.
Grill on each side 6 to 7 minutes on medium and longer for well done.
When you bring the meat in from the grill, let it rest for about 5 minutes.
Slice thin and cut against the grain of the meat.
Cook marinate in a small sauce pan. Boil on low for 5-7 minutes and serve as a dipping sauce of pour over the steak and serve. Serves 4 people depending on steak size.
Serve with garlic mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus a salad for a great dinner.
When I purchase a flank steak and take it home I marinate it then. I do it all in a ziplock bag and freeze until needed.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and remember it would work for most people. The flavor is out of this world! One of our favorites!!!!Happy Cooking!
