Soy n' Sesame Flank Steak

These juicy strips of grilled flank steak are marinated with garlic, soy sauce, chili paste, & sesame oil. These go super fast in my house, so, you may want to make a lot!

I love finding new protein sources for main dish dinners. Flank steak is packed with it and it's easily prepped with minimal effort. You can cut & marinate the night before or earlier in the day and let the meat soak up the delicious Asian flavors. 

And with no surprise you'll have a furry friend right by your side

I prefer to cook this on an outdoor grill, but a cast iron grill pan or indoor grill works as well.

  • 2/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp. chili paste
  • 1 thumb of fresh ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves

For tonight's side dishes I prepared polenta and roasted Brussels sprouts. I always like to have a healthy carbohydrate, vegetable, and protein source at every dinner.
