Grilled Marinated Flank Steak with Roasted Veggies and Rice

Grilled Marinated Flank Steak with Roasted Veggies and Rice

We had some flank steak in the freezer leftover from when we made the bracciole. Jon made up another great marinade today.

The Marinade -
- a little bit of soy
- about 1/4 cup teriyaki
- a little bit of sesame oil
- a few cloves of garlic
- onion powder
- wasabi powder
- dried cilantro
- red pepper flakes
- just a touch of celery salt

The marinade was a bit sweet so it caramelized when Jon grilled it. And yes, he made perfect grill marks again. I'd definitely use this marinade again.

Veggies - tonight I did roasted broccoli and red peppers. I tossed fresh broccoli with olive oil, a few cloves of chopped garlic, a tiny bit of chopped onion, and soy sauce. I roasted it on 375 for about 10 minutes and then I added some sliced red pepper and roasted it for another 5 minutes. The flavor was perfect with the steak marinade.

White rice finished out the meal. It could have used some sort of sauce. If we cooked the steak in the house I would have deglazed the pan to make a sauce, but I couldn't think of what to do since we were grilling (and I was starving and just wanted to eat). Any ideas?

Next time I'll also make some edamame to go along with it.

Tonight's Wine - A 2003 Flora Springs Trilogy
This wine was on sale for $29 from $60. We enjoyed it, but both agree that it was not a $29, yet alone a $60, bottle. I'd pay $15-$18 for this one. It was surprisingly light, bigger than a pinot noir, not overwhelming, and had a fair amount of crust or sediment. I'd recommend it, but only if
it was in a lower price range.
