Black & Blue Steak

Black & Blue Steak
From Forever Summer

Prep time: 5 minutes
Marinate: at least 1 hour (I did it overnight)
Grill time:
10 minutes or so ( still no BBQ so pan grilling instead)

Serves 2

2 strip loin steaks (or whatever you’re favorite grilling boneless steak is)

3 tbsp soy sauce
3 garlic cloves, minced
1” piece of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tsp caster sugar (super fine or fruit sugar…it dissolves faster)
Black pepper to taste

1. Mix all the marinade ingredients in a large zip lock baggie and add the steaks. Marinate for at least one hour on the counter or overnight in the fridge.

2. Allow the steaks to come to room temperature before grilling - about one hour.

3. Grill over medium high heat, 5 minutes per side.

4. Remove from the grill and place on a cutting board, cover with foil for 10minutes. This finishes the cooking and relaxes the meat. I used to think this was a waste of time, but trust me, it really does make any meat more tender and juicy.

Simplest, best tasting dinner ever!
