Using the Herbs

I just used the rosemary from my garden  in my first recipe of the season! I have to say, it was very nice to walk out to the deck and harvest my own herbs. I made a marinated flank steak, that was really delicious and tender. Here's the recipe:

Marinated Flank Steak

1 flank steak, about 1-2 pounds
1 sprig of rosemary, leaves removed
1/4 cup olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon of vinegar (I used white wine, but red wine or rice wine would be fine)
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspons, dijon mustard
1 teaspoon, pepper

Lay flank steak on cutting board and create hash marks with knife to allow the marinade to penetrate. Mix all the ingredients above and add to a plastic bag with the meat. Work the marinade into the meat. Leave overnight for best flavor. Grill and cut along the grain into slices.

I'll be honest. I stopped reading after the words "flank steak" because I'm hungry already. You've inspired an 11am lunch, hope you're happy.

Are you one of those Food Network-watchers like Ashley?
