Orange & Soy Marinaded Steak With Wild Rice

This marinade is similar to the one I used on the pork ribs a while ago.  It's very universal, you can tweak it anyway you want, like adding more heat or turn it towards being Asian by adding ginger, lemon grass and sesame oil.

Recipe for two:
1 pound of flank, flat iron or flap steak
1 c soy sauce
Juice of half an orange
1 T honey
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Salt and pepper
1 t chili flakes
1 small red onion, chopped
1 c black wild rice
1 bunch broccoli rabe
2 c vegetable or chicken stock
2 T olive oil

First, marinade the steak by dissolving the honey into a tiny bit of hot water, add the orange juice, soy sauce, garlic and chili flakes.  Pour over the meat and let it rest for a couple of hours in the refrigerator.

When you're ready get the rice going, wild rice takes a little longer to cook, so plan for that!  To cook the rice add a tablespoon of olive oil to your rice pan and half of the chopped onion with a little salt and pepper, and cook until soft but not brown.  When done add the rice and stir for a little bit over medium high heat.  Then add the stock, when it starts to boil lower the heat to low and cover with a lid.

Place the meat on the grill and cook it how you like!  While that's happening, add the other tablespoon of olive oil to a saute pan over medium high heat.  When it's hot add the rest of the onion and cook until soft.  Wash the broccoli rabe and remove any large stems and chop it up a bit.  When the meat and rice are done, turn off the heat on the rice and leave the pan covered.  Remove the meat to a cutting board and cover, let it rest for a couple of minutes.

Now add the broccoli rabe to the cooked onion and saute, adding a little salt and pepper.

Bon Appetit!  Chef Hobbes
