(Family Features) - Since Asian flavors are an American favorite, and they're especially complementary to beef, try an Asian-inspired marinade the next time you grill.
This ginger-soy-sesame marinade pairs with another favorite - beef flank steak - for a spectacular entrée. An accompaniment of farmer's market fresh squash can be grilled alongside the steak.
Not only will you grill a great-tasting meal, but also one that supplies important nutrients. You get beef's nutrition powerhouse - zinc, iron, protein and B-vitamins - in every bite. Plus, flank steak is a lean beef choice.
To serve, use a sharp knife and carve the flank steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices.
