Grilled Flank Steak with Orange and Star Anise

Serves 2 – 4

1 hour with marinating

Dairy free


1 lb flank steak, trimmed

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

¼ cup orange juice (sour orange juice if you have it)

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon ground star anise

½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper (or more, to taste)

Pinch of salt

For serving

3 small tangerines, halved and tossed with a bit of vegetable oil

(I also grilled whole carrots and red onion for this. That was just what I had on hand. Serve it with whatever.)


1. Combine all of the ingredients except the tangerines, in a shallow dish or large sealable plastic bag and marinate for up to 1 hour at room temperature.

2. To cook the steak, remove from the marinade and either grill or pan sear or broil for 6 minutes. Baste with the marinade, flip, add the tangerines to the grill (or pan or broiler) and continue cooking everything for 4 more minutes for medium rare.

3. Let the meat rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving with steamed rice and the charred tangerines (to squeeze over the meat).
