Grilled Asian Flank Steak with Mango Salad

The marinade for the this steak is outstanding! I also like the fact that you only need to marinate the steak for 15-30 minutes! The salad was the perfect accompaniment to this "Thai" style meal.

serves 8 ( 3 oz. steak with salad = 6 points +)


  • 1/4 c. chopped cilantro
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1 T. crushed ginger
  • 1 T. crushed garlic
  • 1 T. oyster sauce or fish sauce
  • 1 T. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 ( 2 lb. ) flank steak


  • 3 T. lime juice
  • 2 T. water
  • 1 T. reduced-fat peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 6 c. shredded Romaine lettuce
  • 2 c. shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 c. chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 c. sliced green onions
  • 1 mango, peeled and diced

Preheat grill to medium-high heat

Combine marinade ingredients in a large ziplock bag. Add steak and turn to coat. Marinate 15-30 minutes.
Remove steak from marinade. Place on grill. Drizzle with any remaining marinade from the bag. Grill 5 minutes on each side or until desired doneness. Let stand 5 minutes. Slice thinly across the grain.

For salad, combine lime juice, water, peanut butter and crushed red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Add Romaine, cabbage, cilantro and green onions. Toss to coat. Add mango and toss gently.
