Pineapple juice, soy sauce, and honey are used as a marinade for this flavorful steak. This mouthwatering flank steak recipe can also be made with other beef cuts.
Prep time: 10 minutes plus marinating time.
Cooking time: about 15 minutes plus standing time.
3/4 cup pineapple juice
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/4 cup soy sauce
One 1-inch cube ginger, peeled
1 medium-size jalapeño pepper, halved, cored, and seeded
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 3/4 pounds flank steak, well trimmed
1. Puree all ingredients except steak in a food processor. Pour marinade into a large self-sealing plastic bag, add steak, seal, turn to coat well, and refrigerate 6 hours or overnight.
2. Preheat the grill or broiler. Remove steak from marinade, pat dry on paper towels, and grill over moderate
coals or broil 4 inches from the heat until steak is the way you like it. 5 to 6 minutes on each side for medium-rare and 6 to 7 minutes for medium. Flank steak cooked beyond medium will be tough. Let stand about 10 minutes, then, starting on the shorter side of the steak, slice on the bias and across the grain as thin as possible. Serves: 4.
