My Mom’s Flank Steak

This was a favorite at our house growing up.  Really easy to make.

(Not a photo of my flank steak. But doesn't it look yummy?)


1 flank steak

1/4 cup soy sauce (reduced salt)

1/4 cup mirin cooking wine

1 T. rice vinegar

Mix together the soy sauce, mirin, and rice vinegar in a plastic bag.  Marinate the steak in the liquid for 8-24 hours, turning occasionally.  Remove from bag 15 minutes before cooking and let rest.

Broil the steak on the top shelf of the oven for 3-5 minutes per side.  Remove from oven, let rest for 5 minutes, then carve into thin strips.

Serve atop stir fried noodles with vegetables.

P.S.  The marinade makes a fine sauce for the noodles.  Just throw it in the wok when you stir fry the noodles.  Make sure it boils thoroughly
