Although flank steak is lean and flavorful, it is not very tender, so it should be sliced against the grain, very thin. Asian chili paste is very spicy and hot on its own. Here it is mixed with ketchup to tone down the heat so you can enjoy the spiciness.
- 1 lb flank steak
- 1⁄4 cup ketchup
- 1⁄2 teaspoon asian chili paste
- Prepare the broiler pan by spraying it with cooking spray. Pre-heat the broiler. Place the steak on the pan and broil 5 to 6 minutes, until browned. Turn and broil another 4 to 5 minutes, until lightly browned.
- Meanwhile, combine ketchup and chili paste. Brush on flank steak and return to the broiler until the glaze is "set" and the edges begin to bubble, about 2 minutes.
- Let steak rest 5 minutes then cut, against the grain, into thin slices.
