Recipe Time

Prep: 8 Minutes
Chill: 1 Hours
Cook: 14 Minutes
Stand: 5 Minutes


1/2 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
2 green onions, sliced
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 to 1 1/2 pounds flank steak
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro


1. Combine first 7 ingredients. Place steak in a large zip-top plastic bag, and pour half of marinade over meat. Seal, and chill 1 hour or up to 6 hours.

2. Pour remaining marinade into a small saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat 3 minutes or until reduced by one-third and slightly thickened. Cool, and stir in mint and cilantro.

3. Preheat grill to medium-high heat (350° to 400°). Remove meat from bag; discard marinade. Grill on greased grill grate 7 minutes on each side for medium-rare or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Drizzle with reduced marinade before serving.
