Flank Steak

I bought a nice piece of grass fed flank steak. (about 1.5 pounds)
I marinated it for 2 and a half days. Here's the marinade;
1/2 cup (low sodium) soy sauce. 2 tbsps of honey, 3 tbsps olive oil, juice of half a lime, 7 cloves of chopped garlic, one yellow onion finely chopped, 1 teasp red pepper flakes, 1 teasp ground ginger, fresh ground black pepper.

Since it is a tough lean cut of meat, the marinade breaks it down nicely. Put it on the grill and watch closely, DON'T over cook it. (maybe even better to under cook it a bit.)
Let the meat cool and slice thin slices.
Also made some chinese cabbage with garlic,,onion, spinach and a little bit of cheese mixed in at the end. Don't know what possessed me to put some cheese on top, but it tasted real nice. Maybe it was all the recipes recently on they all had cheese involved with them.

A nice glass of red wine with it topped it off. Al ready excited for left over flank steak for breakfast or lunch.

That meat sounds good. How'd you get it cut so thinly??

I'm eating some right now over arugula with some evoo.

Nice sharp knife and cut thin slices. I should have taken a pic of the whole Flank steak. then the slices might have made more sense.

Did you have a yummy breakfast.

I did; thanks for asking!! I had some smoked wild cod with mashed cauliflower puree (steamed cauliflower and garlic, added coconut oil sauteed red onion, coconut milk, salt and pepper into processor)from last night's dinner along with some homemade flax/seed crackers!!

Smoked wild that sounds delicious. Next time I'm in NYC we are for sure meeting up. So you can tell me where to get all those yummy things you get.
