Asian Steaks

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 8 hours 35 minutes
Servings 4 Serves


  • 1 pound flank steak
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
  • 1 1/3 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 1/3 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeno pepper


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate steak overnight or for at least 8 hours.
  • In a large zipper-topped plastic bag, combine all ingredients except cooking spray; seal bag and smash the contents around to blend the flavors.
  • Refrigerate overnight or for at least 8 hours (but no longer than 24 hours). Turn bag occasionally to keep flavors well blended.
  • Preheat outdoor or indoor grill or oven broiler. Remove steak from bag, reserving marinade.
  • Grill/broil steak for about 8 minutes per side or until it reaches desired level of doneness. Allow steak to rest on a cutting board for about 10 minutes to redistribute its juices.
  • Meanwhile, run the reserved marinade through a sieve into a microwave-safe dish; heat at full power for a minute or two, or until it begins to boil.
  • Thinly slice steak diagonally (across the grain); spoon heated marinade on top.
