Tonight was all about ginger garlic flank steak! Let’s get real…nobody has time to spend 2 hours in the kitchen serving up Martha Stewart style dinners every night. If you have time on a Sunday or during the holidays that’s obviously when it’s more realistic to be able to dedicate the time to that type of cooking. For the rest of the days that you are running around like a crazy person trying to get everything accomplished, including dinner, this meal can easily fit into a hectic day. We really try our best to bring you meals that are healthy and inspiring but don’t require 100 ingredients and hours of cooking. This ginger flank steak is so simple to make and we promise that you won’t be slaving away in the kitchen all night long!
You can throw the steak in a ziplock bag the night before to marinade overnight. For the marinade just mix up soy sauce, sesame oil, olive oil, honey, fresh ginger, garlic and fresh squeezed lime juice and add it to the bag with the steak. When dinner time rolls around the next day, simply sear the steak on each side for about 3 minutes. Complete cooking by finishing it off in the oven at 425 degrees for about 5 minutes.
You can serve the steak over rice or cauliflower rice like we have done and add a steamed veggie like green beans or broccoli. Dinner really doesn’t get much easier than this, and it’s delicious!!!
