This grilled beef flank steak salad is one of my all time favorite meals. It’s also easy to make and only takes a few ingredients. Yes, I’m a dude and I love salad.
1lb beef flank steak (you could also use skirt steak)
1/2 cup Soy Sauce
6 tablespoons of granulated sugar
1 tablespoon on minced garlic
1 tablespoon of grated ginger (granulated ginger works fine too)
1 gallon zip top bag or a nonreactive container to marinate in
Grill set up for direct grilling
Add all ingredients (except steak) to your bag or container and mix until the sugar is dissolved. Add the steak. Refrigerate for at least an hour, preferably 2-3 hours. Flip steak at least once to make sure it is seasoned completely.
At this point, you can go wild with whatever ingredients you want in your salad. I used a mix of iceberg and romaine lettuce, carrots, sweet corn, shredded cheese and Green Goddess dressing. Add a slice or two of garlic cheese bread, and you have dinner! YUM!
Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’s:
- You can use whatever dressing you want. Ranch is good, so is a simple vinaigrette.
- Take the flank steak and cut it into even smaller pieces and make lettuce wraps.
- Get on the Asian-Mexican band wagon and make asian fajitas with peppers and onions.
