Grilled Asian Beef Ribbons

A fellow nurse who also happens to be a fabulous cook shared this recipe with me. We like it served with steamed rice and stir-fried vegetables.

    4 servings


  • 1-1/2 pounds beef flank steak
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
