Asian Inspired Flank Steak

Recently I stopped at a local farm to pick up a flank steak and decided to make Asian Inspired Flank Steak.  Flank steak is something my family had often as a kid. But it was marinated in French or Russian dressing.  And since the sugar and additives are not allowed on an AIP way-of-eating, I decided to improvise.

Flank Steak

Flank steak is a cut of meat that requires some time to marinade in order to tenderize it.  Here you will find an article that tells you a bit about this cut of meat.

A couple of my favorite items since starting AIP are Thrive Coconut Aminos (in place of gluten free soy sauce) and Coconut Secret Raw Coconut Vinegar.  And most often when using this combination I will add ginger, garlic and onion.  This time there is also a small amount of Thrive Coconut Nectar.  These specific products highlighted here are items I have been purchasing through Thrive Market.   This is where I find the most affordable and reasonable prices for items and they are delivered directly to my door.  Love this company and the convenience.


In order for the flank steak to cook up tender, I would suggest marinating it for 24 hours.  Once it marinades, then remove the steak and grill about 6 minutes a side for 2 pounds.  This will leave you with a nice medium steak.

The cutting of flank steak is important as well.  Once the steak is cooked and rests for 5 minutes cut across the width or grain of the steak.  This makes the fibers shorter and easier to eat.  Meaning you will have a tender verses tough cut of meat.  I have also found that slicing it at a 45 degree angel as thin as possible gives the most desired result for our family.

Enjoy! Have a beautiful day.
