    The dish is easy to make and the sauce is very good. Flank isn't my favorite cut but it makes for a nice, everyday meal. I think I'm going to try the sauce on some tenderloins which could turn this into a dish worthy of company.

    This was really good. I served it with wild rice. Very tasty indeed.

    Really good, sauce has a lot of flavor. Really easy. Made the ginger rice recipe everyone is talking about but used brown rice instead.

    I GOOGLED THE RICE RECIPE AND HERE IT IS. • Ginger-scallion rice Heat 1 tablespoon canola oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 cup chopped green onion bottoms, 2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger, and 2 minced garlic cloves; sauté 2 minutes. Stir in 1 cup uncooked long-grain rice; sauté 1 minute. Stir in 2 cups fat-free less-sodium chicken broth and 1/4 teaspoon salt; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Stir in 1/4 cup chopped green onion tops.

    I am really confused by all of these stellar reviews. I made this recipe for my husband's birthday - what a HUGE disappointment! The meat was flavorless (I grillled it) as was the sauce. One of you suggested "marinating it longer", I don't see anything in the directions saying to marinate it at all! I followed the recipe exactly. Luckily my guests had tasted other fine recipes from Cooking Light, this one will not be returning to my table.

    This is one of the best recipes I've ever made. Marinate the meat a little longer (2-3 hours) and you will explode with flavor! Buy presliced, prewashed shiitake mushrooms. Preparing "bulk" ones is a mess! oUTSTANDING!

    My husband and I found this to be terribly bland. The sauce was okay but very vinegar-y. The steak needed MUCH more seasoning than just salt & pepper. I saved the steak to make fajitas or quesadillas with it but tossed the sauce. FYI: I followed the recipe to a T.

    I have not tried this recipe yet but want to know if I need to marinate the flank steak and if so for how long?

    I tried this recipe this week and it was easy to prepare and tasty. We'll definitely use this one again and again.

    Where do I find this ginger rice recipe everyone is speaking of? I can't find it. Thank you!

    We grilled the meat. Very bland across the board. Really needs to be spiced up.
