Choose a lean, flavorful cut, such as flank steak, and -- with a sensible portion -- you can have your beef and eat it, too. Sauteed broccoli makes a healthy, low-carb side.



Ingredient Checklist


In the Morning
  • Marinate steak: Peel garlic; peel and slice ginger. Place both in a blender with peanut butter, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup vinegar, sugar, red-pepper flakes, and 2 tablespoons water. Blend until smooth. Place steak in a resealable plastic bag or shallow dish; add all but 1/2 cup sauce and refrigerate. Cover and store reserved sauce at room temperature.

  • Prep broccoli: Cut florets from broccoli (reserve stalks for another use); cover and refrigerate.

At dinnertime
  • Broil steak: Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. Lift steak from marinade; place on a broilerproof baking sheet. Broil until medium-rare, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a large plate, and cover loosely with aluminum foil; let rest, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Cook broccoli: While steak is broiling, thinly slice scallions, keeping whites and greens separate. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium. Add broccoli, scallion whites, and 1/4 cup water; season with salt. Cover skillet, and cook, tossing occasionally, until broccoli is just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Uncover; add remaining tablespoon soy sauce and tablespoon vinegar. Cook, tossing, until liquid is evaporated, 1 to 2 minutes. Mix in scallion greens.

  • To serve, thinly slice steak across the grain; serve with broccoli and reserved peanut sauce.

my BF was not a fan. he said he likes his steak to taste like steak... but I loved it! I wasn't sure about how steak and PB would taste together but it worked well.the peanut sauce is very tasty. I didn't prepare the brocolli as directed, i steamed and tossed in a few tsp of sesame oil and toasted sesame. I also served this w/ some white rice. I would make this again for myself! I also plan on trying the sauce on chicken.

My husband absolutely loved this! We live in Hawaii and are overwhelmed with Asian food, but this is a repeat-recipe!

I agree about not being 4 servings. My husband absolutely loved it though. I think it could use more green onion and ginger. However, I did use ground ginger and I think it probably needs the fresh ginger like it called for.

This was a fabulous dinner. The only thing I would say is this was not 4 servings for my family. My son and my husband gobbled up the steak.
