Ginger Soy Flank Steak

Ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and honey combine to create an umami sauce that takes lean flank steak to another level of delicious.



  • 2-inch slice fresh ginger, peeled, finely chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 Tbsp. crushed red pepper

  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

  • 1 Tbsp. raw honey

  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tsp. sesame seed oil

  • 1½ lbs. flank steak (or tenderized round steak)


  1. Combine ginger, garlic, red pepper, lime juice, honey, soy sauce, and oil in a small bowl; whisk to blend.

  2. Place steak in a shallow dish. Pour ginger mixture over steak; marinate, covered, turning once, for 1 hour in the refrigerator.

  3. Preheat grill or broiler on high.

  4. Grill or broil steak for 5 to 8 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches desired temperature on your meat thermometer (rare is 125° F., medium rare is 130° F., medium is 140° F.). Remove from heat; let steak rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.

  5. Slice steak thinly against the grain.
