Lean, flavorful flank steak does not have to be a grilling-season-only dinner. Indoor grill pans simulate the taste of outdoor cooking with no added fat. POINTS® Value: 4
- 1 1⁄4 lbs raw lean flank steak
- 4 medium garlic cloves, chopped
- 2 tablespoons gingerroot, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup vinegar
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 bunches watercress, cleaned and trimmed
- 2 medium scallions, sliced
- 1 medium carrot, grated
- Put flank steak into a shallow glass or ceramic dish.
- To make marinade, combine garlic through to sesame oil in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour half the marinade over flank steak, turn over to coat both sides, cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours. Refrigerate remaining marinade as well.
- Prepare coals for grill.
- Grill flank steak for 5 to 7 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Set on a cutting board to rest while you finish salad.
- Put remaining marinade into a small saucepan and add 3 tablespoons water. Bring to a simmer over very low heat and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
- In a large bowl, toss watercress, scallions and carrot with warm marinade.
- Slice flank steak into thin strips. Pour any juice from meat over salad and toss it inches Serve flank slices alongside salad.
This was amazing. I loved it. I used all the marinade on the steak and then used a fresh made a vinaigrette with vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, salt and shallots. It was one of the best dinners I have had while on WW. Thank you!!
This did not turn out good for me.
We gave this a 4 stars only because DH didn't care for the salad stuff. He liked the steak, I loved the steak, he didn't care for the watercress salad, I enjoyed it. Made as posted but next time I will only prepare the steak. Thanks for posting. Made for PAC Fall 2008.
