2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger

1--1 1/4 pound flank steak, fat trimmed

A very light sprinkle of salt all over the steak

 

Mix first 5 ingredients to blend in a 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Add steak and turn to coat. Sprinkle lightly with salt. Let stand 1 hour at room temperature or marinate overnight in the refrigerator, turning occasionally.
