Easy Grilling: Jamaican Spiced Flank Steak

I do a lot of grilling in the summer, but honestly, I am grilling year-round. Every year, I work on so many grilling recipe projects for food clients, magazines and cookbooks, and my kids love almost anything that is cooked on the grill. Flank steak is always on the top of my list, and I love this Jamaican Flank Steak recipe. The marinade is really fabulous, made with orange juice, lime juice, fresh ginger, brown sugar, pepper and cinnamon. One of my friends tried it, and she told me she only cooks flank steak this way now. Serve this with a tossed salad, fresh fruit or grilled asparagus, and dinner is fresh, healthy and simple.

32919

I love cooking fresh vegetables in the summertime and love being a part of the Summerfest 2010 community where bloggers feature recipes for certain produce for the next few weeks. To participate, read more about Summer Fest on  Away to Garden from Margaret. This week’s theme features beans, greens and herbs, whichever you choose. My recipe for Green Beans with Cilantro and Pine Nuts is so easy and light. I added some leftover corn from grilling out the night before, but this recipe is great with or without it. The fresh lime juice and pine nuts add great flavor to this simple side dish.
