YUMMY MONDAYS: Ginger Soy Flank Steak


2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon red chili flakes

Lime juice from one lime
1 tablespoon brown sugar (Splenda brown sugar alternative)
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame seed oil
1 (1 1/2-pound) flank steak*

* Tenderized round steak may also be substituted in this recipe.

In a small bowl, combine ginger, garlic, chili flakes, lime juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, and sesame seed oil. Pour mixture over flank steak and let marinate for 1 hour.

Either grill, broil, or pan fry flank steak over high heat to medium rare or until the internal temperature reaches desired temperature on your meat thermometer (see below). NOTE: This steak is best cooked rare to medium rare.

Rare - 120°F
Medium Rare - 125°F
Medium - 130°F

Remove from heat and let steak rest 5 minutes before slicing. With a sharp knife, slice steak thinly against (diagonal) the grain. Place on a platter or individual dinner plates.

Makes 6 servings.

Hi Chalene
I am Claire all the way from Ireland and I just wanted to say I look forward to trying this recipe with my family. I saw an infomercial for Turbo jam when in Florida for easter vacation 2006 and bought it last year. I work out to it all the time and have lost 70lbs with it and diet. Keep up the good work

Hi Chalene. My name is Carrie, and I was introduced to your Turbo Jam workouts by a college friend of mine...

I wanted to tell you, I think they are wonderful, and I hope that you're considering making some more dvd workouts similar to the cardio party 1... I love it and haven't gotten bored with it, but some new move combinations and some updated music is always fun :)
Thanks again for being your fun self and making a workout that doesn't bore me to tears :)

This recipe is super-easy, fast & DELICIOUS. I marinated the steak for several hours, since I was going to work anyway, and the flavor was just incredible.

Thanks, Chalene (and hubby)!!
