Lean, flavourful flank steak does not have to be a grilling-season-only dinner. Indoor grill pans simulate the taste of outdoor cooking with no added fat.

Ingredients

Garlic clove(s)

4 clove(s), medium, chopped

Uncooked lean flank steak

1¼ pound(s), well trimmed

Ginger root

2 Tbsp, chopped

Vinegar

¼ cup(s)

Soy sauce

2 Tbsp

Red pepper flakes

¼ tsp, or to taste

Sesame oil

1 Tbsp

Fresh watercress

1½ cup(s), cleaned and trimmed

Uncooked scallion(s)

2 medium, sliced

Uncooked carrot(s)

1 medium, grated

Instructions

  1. Put flank steak into a shallow glass or ceramic dish.
  2. To make marinade, combine garlic, ginger root, vinegar, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, and sesame oil in a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour half the marinade over flank steak, turn over to coat both sides, cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours. Refrigerate remaining marinade as well.
  4. Prepare coals for grill.
  5. Grill flank steak for 5 to 7 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Set on a cutting board to rest while you finish salad.
  6. Put remaining marinade into a small saucepan and add 3 tablespoons water. Bring to a simmer over very low heat and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
  7. In a large bowl, toss watercress, scallions and carrot with warm marinade.
  8. Slice flank steak into thin strips. Pour any juice from meat over salad and toss it in. Serve flank slices alongside salad.
