Send summer off with the season's best produce and a great grilled supper.

Makes: 4 servings

Prep: 15 mins

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 1 inch piece ginger, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons tamari (dark soy sauce)
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 pound napa cabbage, shredded
  • 2 bell peppers in varied colors, thinly sliced
  • 1 red jalapeno chile or Thai chile, finely chopped
  • 2 pounds flank steak
  • Grill seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • Juice of 2 limes
  1. In a small saucepan, dissolve 2 tablespoons sugar in the vinegar over low heat. Stir in the ginger and garlic. Transfer to a bowl and add 2 tablespoons tamari and 1/2 teaspoon cumin. Let stand for 2 minutes, then discard the ginger and garlic. Add the cabbage, bell peppers and jalapeno; toss.
  2. Preheat a grill or grill pan to high. Season the steak with grill seasoning. In a shallow dish, combine the remaining 1/4 cup tamari, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin, the EVOO and lime juice. Add the steak, turn and let marinate for 10 minutes.
  3. Grill the steak, turning twice, about 12 minutes for medium-rare. Let rest for 5 minutes, then thinly slice against the grain and serve with the slaw.
