Char-Siu Marinated Flank Steak
INGREDIENTS
  • Marinade:
  • ½ cup Oyster Sauce
  • 1” Piece of Ginger, peeled & chopped
  • ¼ cup Soy Sauce (could substitute tamari soy sauce if desired)
  • 2 cloves Garlic, peeled
  • 1 bunch Green Onions, chopped (root ends discarded)
  • 1 piece Star Anise
  • Coconut-Infused Black Rice:
  • 1 cup Chinese Black Rice
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 tsp of Salt
  • Plus:
  • Vegetable Side of Choice

DIRECTIONS

1

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

  • Make the Marinade
2

Combine all marinade ingredients in a blender & blend until smooth (you could also use an immersion/stick blender & a bowl).
3

Dip both sides of the steak in the marinade to coat. Then cover the steak with the marinade & marinate for a couple of hours.
4

Combine the black rice, coconut milk, water and salt in a small oven-safe pot. Bring the liquid to a boil, then cover the pot and move it to the oven. Cook until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender (approx. 30 minutes).
5

Heat a large, oiled frying pan over high heat (or oil & preheat a grill (not too hot, lest the sugar burn)). Scrape most of the marinade off of the flank steak.
6

Pour the remaining marinade into a separate pan & bring it just to a boil. Remove it from the heat
7

Sear the flank steak on both sides in the hot pan (or grill), flipping as necessary, until it develops a dark (but not burnt) crust (we recommend cooking to Medium or less). Remove it from the pan/grill and let it rest, loosely covered with foil, for about 10 minutes.

8

Thinly slice the steak against the grain, on the bias.
9

Serve the steak with the coconut rice, the marinade sauce, and your preferred vegetable side.
