I've been wanting to practice my charcoal lighting skills, so tonight I'm grilling flank steak with a new marinade recipe from Saveur mag: a spicy, chinese inspired mixture reinterpreted from Mei Chin's 1980s childhood.
Our friends will bring some vegetables for grilling, we'll supply the marinated steak, a salad (that arugula one from a few days ago) and a big bowl of beans spiced with soy sauce, honey and sesame oil - made in the crockpot.
--- After dinner follow-up:
Yes, steak is good! Especially good when done over a charcoal grill! And these beans - I had my doubts, but they are really good. Spectacular, in fact. Everyone loved them. The recipe is from Lynn Alley's The Gourmet Vegetarian Slow Cooker.
