The marinating time on this recipe is fairly short, making this a good weeknight choice.
serves 4 ( 5 points +)
- 1 ( 1 lb.) flank steak
- 1/4 c. less-sodium soy sauce
- 3 T. sugar free maple syrup ( I used Log Cabin)
- 2 T. dry sherry or white wine
- 2 tsp. dark sesame oil
- 1 tsp. Sriracha ( Asian hot chile sauce)
- 1/8 tsp. black pepper
Preheat broiler. Pierce steak gently on both sides. Combine steak and remaining ingredients in a shallow dish; turn to coat. Marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes, turning occasionally.
Remove steak from marinade and reserve marinade. Place steak on a broiler pan coated with nonstick spray. Pour reserved marinade in a small saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring well. Cook about 3 minutes or until thick and syrupy.
Brush steak with half of glaze; broil 5 minutes. Turn steak over, and brush with remaining glaze; broil 5 minutes or until desired doneness. Place steak on a cutting board; let stand 5 minutes. Cut diagonally across grain into thin slices.
