Pan Grilled Flank Steak with Soy-Mustard Sauce

I found this meal on Pinterest and we have had it twice and I crave it for days afterward!!  It is so delicious and pretty quick to make.  This is definitely a recipe you want to add to your repertoire and not only is it well rounded, it's actually also very low on calories and not too fatty.  We made some slight changes which probably change the nutritional values, we use regular soy sauce but the real recipe calls for low sodium and we also use olive oil instead of both canola oil and cooking spray.  I serve it just as suggested, with garlic mashed potatoes and garlic asparagus.  We love it!  And I've never tasted a better sauce - melts in your mouth!!


1 pound flank steak, trimmed
3/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp + 1 teaspoon olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
3/4 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


Heat a grill pan over high heat.

Coat the steak with olive oil and then sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper.

Add steak to pan; grill for 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.

Let stand 3 minutes.

Now for the sauce....  Heat a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add garlic; cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add soy sauce, mustard, and sugar; cook 1 minute or until bubbly.

Remove pan from heat. Stir in cream and 1 tablespoon cilantro.

Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices.

Serve steak with sauce, garlic asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes.


Have you made recipes you found on Pinterest???  I've had some flop, so I'm skeptical sometimes, but this made me trust it more!!

Oh, and here is the original recipe.
