  • Whisk coriander, brown sugar, soy sauce, lime juice, garlic, and ground ginger together in a bowl until marinade is well combined.

  • Remove steak from freezer and slice thinly across the grain. Place steak in a large bowl, pour marinade over steak, and toss to coat. Cover bowl and marinate at room temperature for 1 hour.

  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line bottom of a broiler pan with foil.

  • Lay steak slices in a single layer on the rack of the prepared broiler pan.

  • Cook in the preheated broiler, brushing occasionally with marinade, until steak reaches desired doneness, 1 to 2 minutes for medium rare.

I didn't have Coriander Seeds so I used Ground Coriander. 1t of Coriander Seeds = 1 1/4t ground coriander and 3t = 1T so I needed 7 1/2 t of ground Coriander....Holy cow. Also Flank Steak was a whopping 8.99/LB. So between the cost of the meat and the cost of the Coriander IT WASN'T WORTH IT! Read More

Very delicious! I didn't have corriander so I subbed cumin since it's the closest spice profile. I also added a 1/2 Tbsp of molasses because I only had light brown sugar. The steak marinated for a few hours in a glass Pyrex Then we transfered it to a cookie sheet to get an even cook. Make sure the sheet has depth because the marinade gets absorbed into the steak and once cooked the juices come out. Add in your favorite veggies steamed or stir fried and serve over rice. Next time I will try this in the wok. The marinade and juices released when the steak is cooked are so good that you end up spooning it on your veggies anyway. we also added Sriracha for heat. YUMMMMY! Even my very fickle 2 year old loved it. Read More

My family loves this! I did read the reviews and made a few changes. We don't like coriander so I used cumin, and I added 1 teaspoon of lime zest I also used a small eye of round roast because I didn't have flank. I then poured the sauce over the roast and slow cooked it in the oven on 275 for about 3 hours, checking it every 30 minutes and basted the roast each time. I sautéed peppers, onions, and mushrooms in butter, salt and pepper and served it over white rice! If you like Chinese food, YOU WILL LOVE THIS! It is so easy! Next time I am going to make it in my crockpot! Read More

I made it in a wok and made it according to the recipe. The marinaide didn't drip off. I thought there was to much coriander.. Otherwise it would probably be better either broiling it so the marinaide drips off or using half the corriander. Read More
