Tomorrow we are having Asian Flat Iron Steaks for dinner. I will serve this over rice with a green salad.
Asian Flat Iron Steak
One 1 to 1/2 pound flat iron steak (or flank steak)
1/2 c soy sauce
1/4 c lemon juice
1/4 cup minced onion
1/4 c packed brown sugar
2 T sesame oil
1 T fresh ginger (I used about 1 1/2 t ground)
1 T minced garlic
1 t red pepper flakes (optional)
Place steak in a resealable bag. Add all ingredients. Seal bag and turn to coat evenly. Refrigerate 1 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Remove steak from bag, reserving marinade. Grill for 10-15 minutes, or to the degree of doneness you like (medium rare is 135 F). Turn once halfway through grilling. meanwhile, bring marinade to a boil, then simmer over medium heat until reduced by half. Keep warm. Let steak stand 5 minutes before slicing. Slice in thin pieces across the grain. Drizzle with the marinade.
