Ponzu Grilled Steak & Potato Salad

Ponzu Grilled Steak & Potato Salad

Nothing says Labor Day to me like grilled steak and potato salad! It’s the perfect way to say good-bye to summer for another year.

This year I decided to take a different route with my usual Labor Day cookout. An Asian route to be exact. Steak marinated in a lovely combination of Marukan’s delicious gluten free Ponzu sauce (yes! we finally have gluten free Ponzu sauce – thank you Marukan!), ginger and garlic and cooked either on an outdoor grill on stove top.

When it comes to grilling steak, you can transform a less expensive cut of meat into a masterpiece by marinating it. Marinating also helps tenderize the meat. As much as 15 minutes makes a difference but if you can, let the steak marinate in the fridge for up to 8 hours. Try not to go longer that that as your steak will start to break down too much and you will lose some of the texture. This marinade also works really well with skirt steak, just cut the cooking time down to about 2 minutes per side.

Since I was giving my steak an Asian twist, I thought how about my potato salad? Boy, am I glad I came up with that thought! This potato salad it AMAZING!

Wishing you a happy and safe Labor Day!

Ingredients
  • ¾ cup Marukan Ponzu sauce
  • ¼ cup grapeseed, avocado, or vegetable oil, plus more for preparing the grill or pan
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic , grated or finely minced
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1½ - 2 pounds hanger, flap, or flank steak
  • 2 green onions , thinly sliced on the diagonal
Instructions
  1. In a large glass measuring cup or small mixing bowl, combine the Ponzu sauce with ¼ cup oil, the sesame oil, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Pour ¾ cup of the marinade into a large resealable food storage bag. Add the honey to the rest of the marinade and reserve for later. Add the steak to the bag, squeeze out as much air as possible, seal the bag, and massage the steak a bit to get the marinade all over it.

  2. Let the steak sit at room temperature for a minimum of 15 minutes and up to 30 minutes or in the refrigerator for up to 8 hours. If refrigerating, remove from the fridge 30 minutes before cooking to allow the meat to come to room temperature.
  3. If cooking on a grill, preheat the grill to medium-high. Oil the grates well.

  4. Remove the meat from the marinade, discarding the marinade. Pat the meat dry on both sides. Grill meat for 4-6 minutes per side for medium rare or until it reaches an internal temperature of 125-130. Remove the steak from the pan to a cutting board, cover loosely with foil, and let rest for 10 minutes.

  5. Pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for about 2 minutes or until the sauce begins to thicken.
  6. Slice the steak across the grain, put on a serving platter, spoon the sauce over the top and top with the green onions.
  7. If cooking on a stove top, heat a grill pan or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil and heat until it starts to shimmer. Add the steak and cook 4 minutes, flip and cook another 4-5 minutes or until it reaches an internal temperature of 125-130 degrees for medium rare. Remove the steak from the pan to a cutting board, cover loosely with foil, and let rest for 10 minutes.

  8. Pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for about 2 minutes or until the sauce begins to thicken.
  9. Slice the steak across the grain, put on a serving platter, spoon the sauce over the top and top with the green onions.
