Recipe by SilentCricket

For any of you with a George Foreman electric grilling machine...a regular grill could be used too! This recipe is from the "George Foreman's Knock-out-the-Fat Barbecue and Grilling Cookbook!" Sounded mighty tasty to me! Thanks George! (Cooking time includes simmering time for sauce and cooking meat)

This is an excellent way to do flank, i cross cutted both sides of meat, for flavour to permeate more. I cooked the steak on my stovetop cast iron grill (on the ribbed side)and sprayed it with Pam first.. I used a can of tomato paste instead of the puree.I basted both sides of meat as indicated and had plenty of suace left over to drizzle on dish. I Cut the meat into thin strips (against grain)and served on top of Basmati rice and Asparagus. Delicious meal.
