the great steak sandwich

Ginger and sesame marinated flank steak, grilled medium rare. Horseradish yogurt-mayo. Grilled red onions. Peppery arugula. Crusty ciabatta.

Need I say more? Recipe after the jump:

1 (5-inch) piece ginger, sliced thinly
1/4 cup sesame oil
8 garlic cloves, smashed
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice or rice vinegar
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 pound flank steak

Whisk together marinade ingredients until well incorporated. Poor over the steak, cover, and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours. Remove the steak from the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking to bring the meat up to room temperature. Preheat a grill pan over high heat. Grill the steak for 5-6 minutes per side for medium rare, or an internal temperature of 130-140 degrees. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing against the grain into 1/4-inch slices.

Thanks, that was probably the most photogenic steak I've ever cooked. I was pretty jazzed about that.
