This is a recipe from Sunset Magazine and best served with the Flank Steak with Warm Moroccan Spices Flank Steak With Warm Moroccan Spices, they suggest a nice Syrah to be served with this meal as the spices of this meal loop into the same spices of the wine. Note: To toast Pine Nuts, bake in a 325 degree F. oven, shaking pan occasionally, just until beginning to brown, about 8 minutes. Grill the vegetables before the flank steak, then finish the salad as the steak cooks. If grilling over charcoal, you may need to add a few more briquets before grilling the steak.
