Soy and Ginger Flank Steak may take a bit of time to marinate, but the wait will be worth it. This dish has a variety of flavors that will make your mouth very happy.
1 lb lean London Broil
1 tbsp fresh Ginger, minced
2 tsp fresh Garlic, minced
1 tbsp reduced-sodium Soy Sauce
3 tbsp Dry Red Wine
¼ tsp fresh Ground Black Pepper
½ tbsp Olive Oil
Marinate meat at least 3 to 4 hours in advance. Place meat, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, red wine, pepper and olive oil in shallow baking dish. Coat meat with marinade on both sides.
Cover and refrigerate meat in marinade, turning meat once or twice during marinating so all marinade soaks into both sides of meat.
Lightly oil barbecue grill and preheat. Place flank steak on grill. Grill steak, turning once, until done to your preference. Medium-rare will take approximately 12 to 15 minutes.
Slice meat diagonally and against grain into thin slices.
Tips & Notes
Certain cuts of meat such as flank steak, brisket and London broil have a distinct grain (or line) of fibers running through them. If you slice with the grain, meat will seem tough and difficult to chew. These cuts of meat should always be thinly sliced across (or against) the grain so fibers are cut through so meats remain tender and easy to chew.
Garlic has been used all over the world for thousands of years. Records indicate that garlic was in use when the Giza pyramids were built, about five thousand years ago.
The ancient Greek physician Hippocrates (circa. 460-370 BC), known today as “the father of Western medicine”, prescribed garlic for a wide range of conditions and illnesses. Hippocrates promoted the use of garlic for treating respiratory problems, parasites, poor digestion and fatigue.
Garlic is a popular ingredient in cooking and may also have some health benefits.
The original Olympic athletes in Ancient Greece were given garlic – possibly the earliest example of “performance enhancing” agents used in sports.
Throughout history in the Middle East, East Asia and Nepal, garlic has been used to treat bronchitis, hypertension (high blood pressure), tuberculosis, liver disorders, dysentery, flatulence, colic, intestinal worms, rheumatism, diabetes and fevers.
High cholesterol levels are one of the factors that cause heart disease and that is one issue most diabetics face. By incorporating cloves in your daily meals, you can lower your cholesterol levels. This is due to the fact that garlic benefits your body through antioxidants that will prevent low density lipoprotein (bad fat) from being oxidized; therefore reducing your cholesterol level.
Talk to your doctor about garlic or garlic supplements to see if it would be beneficial in your fight against diabetes.
