Maple-Ginger Flank Steak
ACTIVE TIME: 15 MINUTES
TOTAL TIME: 20 MINUTES
Maple, ginger, and soy is a classic combination: something sweet, something spicy, and something savoury, all conspiring to deliciousness. Coconut aminos—a common swap-out for soy sauce—provides the savoury/umami element in the sauce for this steak: No soy needed.
½ cup coconut aminos
1⁄4 cup pure maple syrup
1½ teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1½ teaspoons butter
1 to 2 pounds beef flank steak
Salt to taste
1 small lime, halved
Position the oven rack so the steak will sit 2 to 3 inches from the broiler element and heat the broiler.
In a small saucepan, stir together the coconut aminos, maple syrup, and ginger. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until slightly reduced and syrupy, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter until melted.
Place the steak on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Season both sides of the steak with salt. Brush the top with some of the sauce. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the steak and brush with more sauce. Broil until desired doneness, 2 to 3 more minutes for rare (125°F). If desired, heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat, add the steak, and sear for 1 minute per side to finish.
Transfer the steak to a cutting board, tent with foil, and let rest for 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt. Slice against the grain and serve with the lime halves to squeeze over servings.
Store any leftovers, tightly covered in the refrigerator, for up to 5 days.
Substitution: In place of the butter you may use tallow.
