Pacific Rim Glazed Beef Flank Steak

Total preparation and cooking time: 20 minutes
Marinating time: 30 minutes

1 beef flank steak (1-1/2 to 2 pounds)
Orange slices, fresh rosemary sprigs (optional)

Marinade:
1 cup prepared teriyaki marinade
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
large clove garlic, minced
Pepper

Combine marinade ingredients, adding pepper as desired, in small bowl. Remove and reserve 1/2 cup for basting.

Lightly score both sides of beef steak in crisscross pattern with sharp knife. Place steak and remaining marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn steak to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes.

Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 17 to 21 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning occasionally and basting with reserved 1/2 cup marinade during last 5 to 10 minutes.

Carve steak across the grain into thin slices; arrange on platter. Place remaining basting marinade in small saucepan; bring to a boil. Spoon over beef, as desired. Garnish with orange slices and rosemary sprigs, if desired.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Broil Directions: Place steak on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 2 to 3 inches from heat. Broil 13 to 18 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning once and basting with reserved 1/2 cup marinade during last 5 minutes.
