Soy-Glazed Flank Steak

Soy-Glazed Flank Steak (Adapted from Martha Stewart)

1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons mirin
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 to 2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon canola oil
16 ounces trimmed flank steak
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

In a small saucepan, add soy sauce, mirin, vinegar, ginger, garlic and crushed red pepper - bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Heat a cast-iron skillet over high - add oil. Season both sides of the steak with salt and fresh ground black pepper. Place into the skillet and cook for 3 minutes on each side. Reduce heat to medium - brush top of steak with some glaze, then flip and cook for 1 minute. Brush with remaining glaze - flip and cook for 1 minute more. Remove steak from skillet and place on a cutting board - set aside to rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Thinly slice steak against the grain to serve.

Makes about 4 servings.

  1. Love a cast iron skillet. Haven't grill a steak in forever because the skillet contains fond for a pan sauce. I so see this steak in our future. Thanks Joe!!
