- Flavor Flav

The refrigerator light goes on...

This recipe combines Asian flavors with a French technique (deglazing the pan with butter) to make a steak that's great on its own and makes great sandwiches as leftovers.

Flank Steak

Flank steak is one of my favorite cuts and has only about six grams of fat in each serving. It is less tender than some cuts because it comes form an area that gets more muscular action, but marinated and cooked quickly over high heat it makes for a truly succulent steak. Flank steak also works well in stews because it tenderizes quickly during the stewing process.
