Jazz up ordinary beef with this lively marinade. The beef soaks up flavor for four or more hours, but then requires only minutes to cook and bring to the table.
1 (2-pound) boneless beef top round steak, cut 1 1/2-inches thick
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple (juice pack)
2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- Trim fat from steak. Place steak in a self-sealing plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Cover and refrigerate pineapple for sauce.
- For marinade, in a small bowl, stir together the reserved pineapple juice, green onion, teriyaki sauce, garlic, and ginger.
- Pour marinade over steak; seal bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 6 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally. Drain steak, reserving the marinade.
- Place steak on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5-inches from heat until desired doneness, turning once halfway through broiling. (Allow 18 to 20 minutes total for medium-rare doneness.)
- Meanwhile, for sauce, in a small saucepan, combine the reserved marinade and pineapple. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Cut steak into serving-size pieces. Top with sauce.
