Special diet :
175 mL (3/4 cup) pineapple juice
2 cloves garlic, peeled
50 mL (1/4 cup) soy sauce
one 3.5 cm (1-1/2 inch) cube ginger, peeled
1 medium-size jalapeño pepper, halved, cored, and seeded
50 mL (1/4 cup) honey
30 mL (2 tbsp) vegetable oil
794 g (1-3/4 lbs) flank steak, well trimmed
Purée all ingredients except steak in a food processor. Pour marinade into a large self-sealing plastic bag, add steak, seal, turn to coat well, and refrigerate 5 hours or overnight.
Preheat the grill or broiler. Remove steak from marinade, pat dry on paper towelling, and grill over moderate coals or broil 10 cm (4 inches) from the heat until steak is the way you like it — 5-6 minutes on each side for medium-rare, and 6-7 minutes for medium. Flank steak cooked beyond medium will be tough.
Let stand 10 minutes, then, starting on the shorter side of the steak, slice on the bias and across the grain as thin as possible.
Makes 4 servings.
