flank

Tonight’s dinner consisted of an Asian Sesame Marinated Flank Steak, sweet potato baked french fries and roasted brussels sprouts. This meat was so flavorful!  Let me tell you how I did it.  I put my flank steak (1-1/4 pound) into a shallow dish and sprinkled kosher salt and fresh ground pepper over both sides.  I sliced up two cloves of garlic and put this over the top of the steak.  I then poured one bottle of Asian Sesame Salad Dressing from Trader Joe’s over the steak, covered it with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for a couple hours.

For my sweet potato fries, I cut up about four small sweet potatoes into thin strips, put them on a baking sheet and sprinkled kosher salt on them.  In a measuring cup, I mixed together 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup Trader Joe’s Soyaki (which is a teriyaki sauce marinade), 2 teaspoons jarred, minced garlic, 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard, 1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and 1/2 teaspoon sugar.  I whisked this together and added one tablespoon of chopped fresh cilantro and whisked again before pouring this mixture over the potatoes.  I baked the sweet potato fries at 425 degrees for 20 minutes, turning them after 20 minutes.

On the brussels sprouts, I drizzled olive oil and sprinkled kosher salt and fresh ground pepper over them. I put the brussels sprouts in the oven at 425 degrees (along with the sweet potato fries) and roasted them for 15 minutes.  They turned out fantastic, with just the right amount of crunch.
