    Manami's Note:

    Grill on a wood plank to keep food moist and impart a mild, smoky flavor. It is great for fish, pork and beef. Food cooked on a plank is moist, because of the damp smoke from the wood. The ingredients list is long but that is for the sauce and that goes straight into the food processor. Cooking Light, June 2003. I didn't allow an hour for soaking the plank nor was I able to mention the plank in the ingredients however, I did mention size etc. in the directions.

      Superb! Our steaks were more like 1"-thick, so we ended up putting them directly on the grill (no plank) for 4 additional minutes and they turned out perfect! The sauce was ~WHOOOOIE!~ hot from the garlic and red pepper flakes, but not so much to render it inedible for our shy taste buds. In fact, the more I ate it, the more I wanted! I omitted the mint -our preference- and filled in that blank with more parsley and cilantro. We both LOVED the result from the technique used here. The flavor from the planking (ours was cedar) was profoundly rich... really, really lovely. Thank you for sharing this true keeper, Manami!

      I wish I could give this more stars. I am sitting here -- full -- and just saying over and over THAT WAS SO GOOD. I used a maple plank because that's all I could find. Then I caught it on fire ;) but for the 10 minutes they were on the plank it imparted a really rich flavor. I finished them on the grill which I liked because of the carmeliztion. I made it with corn on the cob which also tasted really beautifully smokey. I can't wait to make this again and I don't say that lightly. Thanks for sharing!
