Ginger-Soy Grilled Steak

Oh my gosh, here’s a post for any and all bargain-hunting carnivores:  I’ve got one for you today.  A really good one.  And even though I almost just burned my house down (no lie) by broiling the steak that’s in the photo above, I am still like, mega excited to tell you about this recipe.  However due to the recent pyrotechnics in the oven, my entire house now smells like an Outback Steakhouse, so let’s just get on with this so that I can get on with the small matter of airing out the joint.

If you have the luxury of time, let your steak marinate for a good eight hours.  I threw this together last night before I went to bed, so my two steaks (double up like I did, you won’t be sorry) had about a 12-hour swim in this yummy, Asian-inspired concoction.  I love to serve this fabulous beef with my favorite Coconut Rice Pilaf or mashed potatoes, but it’s also excellent served over romaine as a simple steak salad.  Whatever you do, please babysit your broiler (or grill) and for goodness sakes don’t go burning down your house in the name of dinner.

Have a great week. : )

SERVES:  4-6

6 T. soy sauce (San J Sauces are on sale)
1/4 c. chopped onion (Jumbo Vidalia Onions are on sale)
1/4 c. rice vinegar
2 T. sesame oil
1 T. chopped peeled fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 c. chopped scallions
1 – 1 1/2 lb. top sirloin steak, about 1 inch thick (Sendik’s Natural Black Angus Top Sirloin Steaks are on sale)

Blend first six ingredients in processor or blender until almost smooth; pour into 13x9x2″ glass dish or a large sealable plastic bag.  Mix scallions into marinade.  Add steak and turn to coat.  Cover (or seal) and refrigerate at least an hour or up to one day, turning steak occasionally.

Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat) or preheat broiler.  Pour marinade into small saucepan and bring to a boil; then pour into a small serving bowl.  Grill or broil steak to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium rare.  Transfer steak to cutting board, tent with foil and allow to rest for 5 – 10 minutes.  Cut steak crosswise on diagonal into thin slices.  Serve steak with sauce.
