Quite possibly the greatest steak teriyaki you’ll ever eat. EVER.

welcome back B….

get yourself one flank or skirt steak.

add one cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup brown sugar (i use sugar in the raw) , 3-4 cloves of garlic (crushed, no need to chop them up), 4 TBS honey, and 2-3 TBS of thai garlic/chili paste (see pic-can be omitted) to a small sauce pan set to medium. once it starts to bubble gently, remove from heat and let it sit for about an hour (it needs to be at least room temp. once it’s cool enough put it into a ziplock bag and chuck the steak in with it.  place in the fridge for at least 24 hours. after sitting in fridge for a day or so, remove from fridge and let it get close to room temp. NEVER grill a cold steak (makes it tough). discard the marinade, and grill steak to your desired doneness.

i usually serve it with steamed broccoli or a steamed sweet potato.

so good, i put it in my cherios.

maybe i’ll post my recipe for snicker brownies soon. i’m not really into sweet’s, but every once in a while my good female friends asks me to make her a batch. they’re REEEALLY good. it’s really the only desert i make.

    We’re gonna try this. Is it very spicy? I’m a spice wimp. Husband is a spice champ.

    Bb-
    i LOVE spicy, but even with a ton of the chili paste it’s not that bad. i’d just recommend using maybe 1 TBS, and adjusting it if you make it again.

    let me know how it turns out.

    The steak verdict! It was very good, and a great recipe. A few things we need to work on:

    – it came out a bit salty. I think it’s because when we originally made the marinade, it boiled over and we may have reduced it down too much. (But while it was getting made, the child said, “What smells so good? It smells like that Thai restaurant we like!”)

    – we served it with roasted sweet potatoes. The sweet potatoes were a good counterpoint to the steak, but they were a bit over roasted, had caramelized and were really rich. Steaming would have been better.

    – served with romain salad. That was a nice touch, especially with balsamic vinaigrette.

    – As I said before, I’m a heat wimp. This was not spicy at all. We used Sriracha Sauce.

    We will make it again until we perfect it!

    Looking fwd to more recipes…

      i usually have to make something 2-3 times before i nail it.

      glad you enjoyed it.

      speaking of salad dressing….mix olive oil/GOOD red wine vinegar with 1 TSP “poulty seasoning” by mccormick, 1-2 cloves chopped garlic. mix and serve. it’s REALLY sinple, and VERY delicious. enjoy.
