Thai Marinated Flank Steak
A fast thai marinade for flank steak on the grill.
Thai fish sauce
piece of fresh Ginger
lime zest and juice
Peel the ginger by scraping off the thin skin with the edge of a spoon.
Grate the ginger into a fine, almost paste consistency using a micro-grater (or zester).
Mix together the ginger, soy, fish sauce, honey and lime juice and zest.
Place the flank steak in a shallow dish and pour in the marinade, turning the steak to coat.
Marinate the steak at room temperature for about 45 minutes, turning the steak a few times throughout.
While the flank steak marinates, preheat the grill to high.
After 45 minutes, remove the steak from the marinade and place on the hot grill.
Grill the marinated flank steak for about 6 or 7 minutes per side over direct heat.
Remove the grilled flank steak from the grill and let rest on a platter for about 5 minutes.
Slice the flank steak thin
against the grain
for maximum juice tenderness.
