My daughter and I rode bikes to the Farmer's Market yesterday afternoon. Being on the bikes limited our purchases (no eggs!). But we picked up some green beans, grape tomatoes and fresh artisan bread made with sun-dried tomatoes and parmesan. Yum. Okay, so for photo purposes keeping it in the orange bowl wasn't the best choice. But everyone was hungry so I was lucky to even get to take THIS photo!
Flank Steak with Famer's Market Fare
2 tsp olive oil, separated
Grape or Cherry Tomatoes
1 tsp sesame oil
1 Tbs + 2 tsp soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
Start salted water to boiling.
Trim the flank steak a bit -- not completely as you'll want some fat for flavor. Rub 1 tsp of olive oil on one side of the steak. Generously sprinkle salt and freshly ground pepper on it. Repeat on the other side. Grill the steak for 3-4 minutes per side. Do not over cook. Let sit on the carving board while you do the rest.
Trim the green beans to your taste (size, etc.) and cut the tomatoes in half. Add the green beans to the boiling salted water, cook about 2-3 minutes; drain and rinse with cold water.
Mix the sesame oil, soy sauce and garlic with a whisk.
With a VERY sharp knife, slice the flank steak across the grain into thin slices. Add it, and any juices that accumulated while it was resting, to a big serving bowl. Add the green beans and sauce and mix well. Finally, add the tomatoes.
IF there are any leftovers, they're great the next day. And very low cal.
