Here is a great flank steak recipe that I like to throw on the grill during the summer months. It has an excellent Asian flavor from the ginger and soy sauce marinade. I also substitute tenderized round steak in this delicious Ginger Soy Flank Steak recipe. It cooks quickly and tastes so good.

Ginger Soy Flank Steak Recipe:
Ginger Soy Flank Steak Recipe
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon red chili flakes
Lime juice from one lime
1 tablespoon brown sugar
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame seed oil
1 (1 1/2-pound) flank steak*
* Tenderized round steak may also be substituted in this recipe.
In a small bowl, combine ginger, garlic, chili flakes, lime juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, and sesame seed oil. Pour mixture over flank steak and let marinate for 1 hour.
Either grill, broil, or pan fry flank steak over high heat to medium rare or until the internal temperature reaches desired temperature on your meat thermometer (see below). NOTE: This steak is best cooked rare to medium rare.
Rare - 120 degrees F
Medium Rare - 125 degrees F
Medium - 130 degrees F
What constitutes rare and medium-rare cooked meat? To satisfy government home economists, the Beef Council says rare beef means an internal temperature of 140 degrees F. Well, that is ok if you like well-done and dry meat. If you like moist, rosy meat (like I do), rare begins at an internal temperature of 120 degrees F. and starts to become medium rare at 125 or 130 degrees F. To cook your meat properly, you must purchase and use a good instant-read digital meat thermometer.
This is the type of cooking and meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking. I get many readers asking what cooking/meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking and baking. I, personally, use the Thermapen Thermometer shown in the photo on the right. To learn more about this excellent thermometer and to also purchase one (if you desire), just click on the underlined: Thermapen Thermometer.
Remove from heat and let steak rest 5 minutes before slicing. With a sharp knife, slice steak thinly against (diagonal) the grain. Place on a platter or individual dinner plates.
Makes 6 servings.
