    Really good flavor in both the marinade and the peanut sauce. I got a late start so only marinated the steak for 6 hours. We grilled the steak to have it med-rare instead of pan frying -- delicious results. I doubled the marinade and sauce to accommadate a 2 lb flank steak. Only change was to add another Tbs peanut butter and brown sugar to the sauce. Served with rice and Glazed Baby Bok Choy.

    This was really great! I made it for my husband's birthday and we loved it. I made it with wasabi mashed potatoes and some steamed sugar snap peas. Delish!

    This was SO delicious. My husband asked me to add it to the "list of stuff to make again." The sauce we excellent, and I made enough so we could put it over the brown rice I served with the meat.

    Yumm! The peanut sauce is great. Similar to what you get at a Thai restaurant but without a ton of calories.

    My husband and I love this! Quick and flavorful. We like the sauce sweeter, so I added 1 T of brn. sugar, and one extra T of peanut butter. Also, I didn't have grn. onions, so I used onion powder...I served it with brown rice & steamed broccoli sauteed with garlic and soy sauce.

    This was tasty but not really anything to write home about. I made the entire menu specified in the article, but I grilled the steak. The glazed bok choy was a little too sweet for my taste.

    This was a wonderful meal, and I did not change a thing. It was perfect after a long day at work. Knowing that my Monday was going to be a long day at work, I marinated the flank steak on Sunday, and the rest was easy to accomplish. I grilled the flank steak, because that is how I prefer it. I served with mashed potatoes and steamed sugar snap peas. I drizzled the sauce on the flank steak, and livened up my mashed potatoes by using the rest of the sauce like a gravy. I found the sauce is fine as is, as long as you don't drown your flank steak in it. Yummy! We will definitely add this to our beef rotation.
