Asian Grilled Flank Steak
We finally did it. We took our first family vacation, we’ve done vacations in the past but most of the time it’s for a purpose. A 25th wedding anniversary, a birthday party, christmas get together … But never just us three!
At the beginning of this year Mike and I sat down, looked at the calendar and tried to figure out our “vacation situation.” We had a couple trips planned … Christmas, family visits and such .. and then we normally try to take a least one mommy and daddy trip a year. Just to reconnect.
But this year I also had my heart set on a family vacation. Just us three … our little unit .
We had gone back and forth on where to go. Mexico is usually pretty reasonably priced but we decided to opt for a quick roadtrip. In fact, we are on the way back from our roadtrip as I’m writing this … that you Verizon hotspot. 🙂
San Antonio is about 3 hours from where we live and is a fun little place to vacation. We booked the Hyatt Hill Country Hotel & Spa. It was a GREAT place to stay, especially if you have kids.
We spent our weekend floating down the huge lazy river in our tubes .. or as Cason calls them “cubes.” Built sand castles on the little sand bar they had along the lazy river. Flew down the huge water slide probably 30+ times, Mike had his own splash zone when he went down. Then Mike and Cason decided to try out the FlowRider they had .. it’s basically a machine that replicates surfing or body boarding. Cason totally nailed it … 🙂 We ended each night hanging out by the campfire making s’mores!
After our stay at the Hill Country Hyatt we headed over to downtown San Antonio to stay on the Riverwalk. We walked around a bit, ate lunch, then got rained out so we headed inside to play games at Dave & Busters. We finished off our long weekend adventure with a visit to the Alamo… a must if you’re in the San Antonio area.
All those details to tell you my heart is full. My phone is filled with photos and memories from this weekend that I will always remember! We had so much fun with lots of laughs … we even took our first official family bike ride on that trip! 🙂
Ok, now onto the thing you all came here for… the recipe! 🙂
Todays recipe is all about the grill and that asian flare! This recipe is pure perfection, you’ll LOVE the marinade and how it seeps into every part of the flank steak. This marinade has hints of toasted sesame, sweetness from the honey, tang from the rice vinegar and lime juice, saltiness from the soy sauce, and a bit of heat from the chili paste.
Yes, there are a lot of ingredients in the marinade but the taste is worth every single one of them. Be sure to set aside a little bit of the marinade to finish off the steak once it’s off the grill. It will totally take this steak from great to excellent and turn this recipe into a repeat meal for your family this summer!
Bon Appetit my friends and happy Monday!Print
