A good friend came for dinner, still cold outside and knowing that he loves beef, I cooked flank steak. Would have preferred to cook the steak on my charcoal grill, but it was dark and cold. So, it was pan seared and finished in the oven. We also had eggplant and pizza with soppresatta. Here is the recipe for the flank steak.
1 flank steak about 2.5 lbs (1 kg)
1/4 cup (80 ml) soy sauce
5 tablespoons (75 ml) vegetable oil
1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
1. Mix soy sauce, ginger, vegetable oil and garlic in a zip lock bag. Add flank and seal the back, mixing the meat into the marinade, let this marinade for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
2. Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C).
3. Remove flank from marinade and in a heavy bottom hot pan add the steak, sear for about 4 minutes on one side, turn over and place into the oven for about 5 to 6 minutes.
5. When done, remove, slice and serve.
