Asian Inspired Steak

Asian Inspired Steak
One of the very best things about summer is experimenting with new flavor combinations on the grill.  Simple flavors blend in the form of marinades, sauces to baste, and new ways to approach the art of grilling.  Nothing in the world beats roasting vegetables on the grill when you just got them from the farmer's market that morning.  This marinade mixture that Olivia tried is a perfect combination of sweet, tart, acidic, and spicy.   Marinades like this one make a special cut of steak even more special and can even elevate marinated stew meat on skewers to new and exciting levels.  Fire up the grill and get cooking!  Don't let summer pass you by!

In a gallon sized plastic bag, mix:

1 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons lime juice
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
3 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
2 tablespoons onion flakes

Place your choice of steaks in the bag with the marinade and allow the steaks to marinate overnight.  Think skirt steaks work well with this marinade!  Grill the steaks over medium high heat.

Serve steaks with rice or couscous and grilled vegetables.  Red bell peppers, sweet onions, and pineapple were grilled on skewers with this steak.


Grilling tips: 1)  If you are using wooden skewers to make kabobs, soak them in water first--helps keep them from becoming kindling on the grill.  2)  If you like beets, peel fresh beets, cut them in chunks, place them on foil and season with butter and salt.  Wrap them and grill them until a little soft.  This is my FAVORITE way to eat beets!
