TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. + standing YIELD:8 servings


  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 beef flank steak (2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 small garlic clove, peeled and halved
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 bunch romaine, torn
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the lime juice, soy sauce, garlic and ginger; add the beef. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  • 2. Drain beef and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill beef, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 10 minutes. To serve, thinly slice across the grain.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a blender, combine the vinegar, soy sauce, ketchup, onion, sugar, garlic, ginger, salt and pepper; cover and process until pureed. While processing, gradually add oil in a steady stream.
  • 4. Place romaine and tomatoes in a large bowl. Drizzle with vinaigrette; toss to coat. Divide among eight plates; top with steak. Yield: 8 servings.
