Terrible title for the post, I know. What really matters is the recipe so please try to ignore that title, ok? I had this meat dish recently at my friend Brooke's house. It was so different and I was excited to try it out. This was the last dinner I made for our guests and it really went over well...I love how the different flavors come together. I served it with crashed hot potatoes and broccoli with cheese. Delish!
2 lbs beef flank steak
1/4 c packed brown sugar
3 tbsp orange juice
3 tbsp lime juice
1 piece (1 1/2" x 1") fresh ginger, minced (I used 1 tsp of ground ginger)
2 tsp grated orange peel (I omitted)
2 tsp grated lime peel (I omitted)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
Combine sugar, juices, garlic, ginger, peels, salt/pepper, cinnamon and cloves in baking dish. Add beef, turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate to marinate.
2 options for cooking (I chose to grill):
Grill for 6 mins on each side or
Bake on 375 for 40 mins then let sit for 10 mins
Crashed Hot Potatoes
Source: Pioneer Woman
small, round potatoes with skin left on (red potatoes or small Yukons work well)
Preheat oven to 450. Add the potatoes to a large pan of salted water. Bring to the boil. Simmer briskly for 15 minutes or until potatoes are almost cooked. Remove potatoes from the pan and place on a baking tray. Using a masher or the back of a big spoon, gently squish each potato until they are half intact, half broken up. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in a very hot (450) oven for 20 minutes. I added some shredded cheddar cheese about five minutes before they were done, and served with sour cream.
