Asian Style BBQ Flank Steak Recipe

Photo by Just a Flank is a long and flat cut of meat located on the underside of the belly like a diaphragm muscle in a human. It is tougher  than the other beef cuts and many time cooking methods call for long slow cooking or braising. It is perfect for cooking quickly on the grill. Think of a beef fajita; this is the cut that was originally and should still be used. Cooking the meat over high heat and searing it seals in the juices and helps to keep it juicy and tender. Cutting against the grain is a must if you do not want to chew indefinitely. My take is a slight variation from what you may be used to. Try this Asian BBQ sauce I like to serve it on mustard greens. Stay Eat Allergy Free has recipes for GF/DF/NF hoisin sauce and alternatives to Soya Sauce too! ASIAN BBQ FLANK STEAK serves 6-8 Asian Bbq Sauce 1 tablespoon/15ml vegetable oil 2 cloves chopped garlic 1 small minced onion 1 tablespoon/15ml chopped fresh ginger ¼ cup/60ml mirin wine or sake

4 Simple Ways to Take Your Grilling Game From Good to Great

Spice up your summer barbecues – literally. By  Leslie Bonci YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO  much to make grilled foods taste good. After all, the grilling process itself brings a mouthwatering aroma, texture and flavor to foods. But if you're the grill master this summer, try taking your dishes' flavors to the next level by following some of these tips: 1. Make your own marinade. Marinades are the vinegars or juices that tenderize the food. Typically, a marinade is equal parts acid (such as vinegar, lemon juice, tomato juice or wine) and oil with seasonings to taste. I prefer a marinade that is a 2-to-1 ratio of acid to oil. With the spices, start with less; you can always add more. Consider minced garlic, minced fresh parsley, oregano, basil, pepper, salt, chili powder, cumin, five spice powder, chipotle seasoning or za-atar. Meat and poultry:  If you're making a meat that can take on a stronger flavor like beef, pork, veal, lamb or poultry,

LAURA KINIRY Left: Spiegelman's Raspberry Frozen Yogurt with Bone Broth Caramel Sauce, created in honor of artist Georgia O'Keeffe and two of her paintings in particular — including one of animal skulls. Right: The ice cream maker's ode to Stonehenge. Hannah Spiegelman If Stonehenge Monument were an ice cream, it would be a delicious bowl of vanilla blended with bits of oats and hazelnuts and honey swirls. At least according to Hannah Spiegelman, a small-batch ice cream maker in Baltimore who explores the sweet — as well as salty, spicy and even a little nutty — sides of historical people and places through  A Sweet History , her blog,  Instagram feed  and occasional pop-up stand of the same name. Spiegelman creates unique ice cream flavors inspired by everything from historical figures to art history, mythology, astrology and historic events.
