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)
Combine ginger, garlic, red pepper, lime juice, honey, soy sauce, and oil in a small bowl; whisk to blend.
Place steak in a shallow dish. Pour ginger mixture over steak; marinate, covered, turning once, for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
Preheat grill or broiler on high.
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.
Slice steak thinly against the grain.
