Summer Steak Salad

  • Recipes from Primal Bites

  • Steak Marinade 
  • 1 pound of flank steak
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp coconut aminos (or soy sauce if you aren’t paleo)
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  1. Combine all the marinade ingredients, and put in a large freezer bag.
  2. Score the steak with ¼ inch deep cuts about an inch apart, across the grain of the meat, then place in the freezer bag and coat the steak with marinade. Seal the bag, place it in a bowl, and chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours, or up to overnight.
  3. Remove the steak, sprinkle generously on both sides with coarse sea salt and fresh ground pepper.
  4. Grill the steak for 4-6 minutes on each side on a hot grill, or broil in the oven on high for 4-6 minutes per side
  5. Remove the steak from the grill/oven, place on a cutting board and cover with aluminum foil to rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Slice thinly, against the grain and as a slight diagonal to make wider slices.
