Here's a delicious, hearty entrée that comes together in under half an hour. A few basic seasonings, like soy sauce, ginger, and garlic powder, give flank steak great flavor. If you can plan ahead, the longer you let the steak marinate, the better the flavor, but you can let it sit for half an hour if you're in a hurry. The fresh salsa, which is made with pineapple, sweet red peppers, and scallions is lovely as is, but you can add crushed red pepper flakes for a little heat. You can also try it with some chopped tomatoes, fresh herbs, and red onions to mix things up a bit.
