Ginger Sesame Flank Steak

The Ginger Seasame Flank steak has a flavor like no other steak. Avoid overcooking. Slice against the grain 1/2 inch thick into strips to serve as an entree or hors d'oeuvres. With its subtle blend of ginger and sesame, it's great for a stir fry or serving right from the grill. Try it - you'll love it! 

Nutritional Information

Cooking Instructions Print Version

Servings per pound: 2 to 4

For additional cooking instructions, please see the chef's tips and the USDA cooking recommendations.

1. Oven

Type of heat

Bake or broil.

Settings and timing

Cook at 275-300°F for 8-12 minutes for medium rare to medium.

Special instructions

Let sit for 5-10 minutes before slicing.

Chef's tip 

Seasoning: No additional seasoning needed. Our marinade does it all for you!

2. Grill 

Type of heat

Use indirect heat. The sugars in the marinade will scorch if the heat is too intense.

Settings and timing

Grilling with either gas or charcoal generally is best at medium high heat. Always start there and adjust as needed.

Special Instructions

Let sit for 5 minutes +/-. No need for basting.

3. Stove Top    

Type of heat

Direct - this is a great item for pan searing or sautéing.

Settings and timing

Medium high heat. Follow the temperature guide for doneness. You will need 3-5 minutes per side to achieve medium or medium rare.

Special instructions

Let sit for 5 minutes +/-.

4. Poaching

Settings and timing

Poaching this cut of beef in hot oil is tremendous. Use either canola oil or clarified butter (preferred) that is heated to 180°F. Make sure the oil covers the entire flank so you will not need to turn it. Cook 10-12 minutes for rare to medium rare. Always use the greatest care when dealing with hot oils. Make sure the handle of your pan is “turned in” - not extending over the edge of the stove. A hot oil spill can be very dangerous.
