Here is a good flank steak recipe with no sugar, honey, or soy sauce - great for those watching their salt and sugar intake. Fits perfectly into WeightWatchers Core program. Preparation time does not include marinating. The original recipe says this makes 6 servings, but my husband and I polish it off in one dinner! Source: Bon Appetit, May 1995
