Soy Marinated Flank Steak with Crispy Asian Style Salad

If you’re looking for something easy and delicious to cook, look no further than this juicy flank steak with crispy Asian style salad. This dish is so vibrant and packed full of flavour, with a punch that’ll really get those tastebuds singing!


Step 1
Place steak in a shallow dish large enough to fit whole steak and marinade. Make the marinade by mixing together all the ingredients in a bowl. Pour over steak and allow to sit at room temperature for 20 mins. Turn on BBQ at this point and heat to high, you want the BBQ smoking hot**.

Step 2
While steak is marinading, prepare all the veg for salad, keeping elements separate until final plating. Make the dressing by whisking together all dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Place in fridge until ready to serve.

Step 3
Once the BBQ is hot and steak is at room temperature, cook for 4-5 mins turning frequently. With this particular cut you want to have a nice medium rare, blushing pink finish. Once cooked to your liking, place steak on a board and allow to rest for 10 mins. Using a sharp knife, slice on the angle.

Step 4
Serve steak and salad on a larger serving board, dress salad at the last minute and finish with extra herbs.

Key tip

  • *Feel free to reduce (or increase) the amount of chilli in this dish, I like mine quite spicy.
  • **This recipe can also be cooked indoors in a griddle pan or large heavy based skillet – the key is to ensure the pan is super hot to lock in the flavour and tenderness of the meat.
  • Cooking steak – hot bbq – turning frequently – cooking to medium rare – important to let the meat rest after cooking to allow the meat to settle and continue to cook
  • Marinating steak adds flavour.
  • Salad – dressing only at the end – all about balance – being crunchy is important
  • Kikkoman Less Salt Soy Sauce, is naturally brewed using Kikkoman Soy Sauce, salt is then extracted after the brewing process, resulting in 43% less salt.
