Taste of Asia Flank Steak

Servings 6 people


  • 1/2 cup red wine or use low sodium beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons gingerroot grated
  • 1/2 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeno chopped, seeded
  • 3 cloves garlic pressed
  • 1 1/2 pounds beef flank steak trimmed
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 8 ounces Chinese noodles


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate flank steak overnight or for at least 8 hours (see recipe).
  • In a large zipper-topped plastic bag, combine first 8 ingredients (wine through garlic); pour off 1/4 cup of this marinade, cover it tightly and refrigerate for later use.
  • Place flank steak in the bag with remaining marinade; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 8 hours, turning occasionally.
  • Preheat indoor or outdoor grill to MEDIUM.
  • Remove steak from marinade, and grill for 8 to 12 minutes, brushing with reserved marinade until it reaches the desired level of doneness.
  • Meanwhile, transfer marinade from plastic bag to small saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat; cook for 5 minutes then remove from heat.
  • Remove steak from grill to a cutting board and let it rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, steam broccoli and prepare noodles.
  • Thinly slice steak across the grain (diagonally); serve over noodles with steamed broccoli, and drizzle the sauce over all.
