I made this up. I was looking for a use for a piece of flank steak and while rooting around in the fridge I found some homemade marmalade that had never jelled. Orange, beef and ginger just seem to go really well together. I think you could use different greens, but make sure that you use something that can stand up to a little wilting. Prep time does not include marinating.
- 2 lbs flank steaks
- 8 ounces marmalade
- 2 cups orange juice
- 1 cup rice wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons ginger, minced
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2 heads romaine lettuce, chopped
- 1 head radicchio, chopped
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons butter
- To make the marinade, combine the marmalade, orange juice, vinegar, garlic, ginger and salt.
- Marinate the flank steak for 2-4 hours.
- Broil the flank steak 6 minutes on each side. Allow the meat to rest 10 minutes before cutting, against the grain, into thin slices.
- After you remove the meat from the marinade, boil the marinade in a sauce pan until reduced by half, to about 1 1/2 cups. Whisk occasionally.
- Whisk the butter into the sauce.
- Combine the chopped salad greens.
- For each serving, put a helping of greens into a bowl, top with a portion of meat and 3 tablespoons of the sauce.
Really excellent flavor! The flank steak was tender & cooked perfectly at 12 minutes total. The sweet & tangy orange/ginger balanced with the bitter radicchio was a beautiful combination. My only change next time would be to strain the orange rind before boiling down the marinade. A few bites were heavy with the orange peel & that flavor overpowered the rest. All in all an excellent response from my family. They've already requested it again. Thanks for sharing your creation, Tannic! Made, enjoyed & reviewed for Pick A Chef Fall 2008.
