Recipe

This Asian-inspired lean beef dish is brought to life through the power of umami. A dash of soy sauce added to the zesty, sweet marinade brings out the best in beef.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 6 Hours Or Overnight
Cooking time: 35 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 beef top round steak, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 1 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cups thinly sliced carrots
  • 3 cups fresh pea pods, strings removed
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 3 cups hot cooked jasmine rice, prepared without butter or salt
  • Chopped fresh cilantro

Marinade:

  • 1/2 cup prepared plum sauce
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper   

Directions

 

 

1.    Combine marinade ingredients in small bowl. Place beef steak and 1/2 cup marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn steak to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally. Cover and reserve remaining marinade in refrigerator.

2.    Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 8 to 9 minutes for medium rare doneness, turning occasionally and basting with some of the reserved marinade during last 2 to 3 minutes of grilling. Remove; keep warm.

3.    Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add carrots; stir-fry 5 minutes. Add pea pods and garlic; stir-fry 2 minutes.

4.    Carve steak into thin slices. Season with salt and black pepper, as desired. Place remaining marinade in small saucepan; heat until warm. Serve with steak, vegetables and rice. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
