Healthy eating

Tonight we had a spicy marinated flank steak, sliced thin, skewered and grilled.  When you are trying to use less fattening ingredients, adding lots of spice can really help.  Keith loved it and there is enough leftover for his lunch tomorrow.

Thai syle grilled spicy flank steak

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 small yellow onion, minced
  • 1 TB fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 TB chopped fresh lemongrass or 1 tsp dried
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced (leave out seeds and wear gloves when handling)
  • 1 TB low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 lb flank steak, diagonally across the grain into thin slices
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 TB cashews, chopped

Combine honey, onion, ginger, lemongrass, garlic, jalapeno, soy sauce, fish sauce and sesame oil.  Pour over flank steak and refrigerate for at least an hour and up to overnight.

Skewer steak strips and grill – about 5 – 6 minutes.  Serve over rice topped with scallions and cashews.
