Some nights, you just need a really simple recipe.

I love buying flank steak because it’s such a versatile cut! It’s easy to just plan a Fajita night, but this time I decided to put an Asian marinade on the steak and broil it for laziness purposes.

I’m not sure why, but I only recently started using my broiler for cooking meat. Mostly I just used it for making nachos and roasting poblanos.

I was binge-watching the Food Network not too long ago and *someone* on *some show* (really can’t remember, sorry guys) said that a broiler is really just like an upside-down grill.

Aha moment!

I had never thought about it that way, but it makes total sense and gave me the extra push I needed to start broiling my meats.

For this hoisin steak recipe, you just preheat your broiler (on High if there’s a setting for that), mix up the glaze, then brush the top of the flank steak with the sticky hoisin sauce. Broil it on one side, flip it and brush the hoisin steak glaze the second side, then put it back in to finish cooking on the other side. Let it rest, slice it, and DIG IN.

See, I told you it was easy.

Use the leftovers to make Asian fusion tacos, hoisin steak salad, or even Vietnamese-style Bahn Mi sandwiches!

I served this hoisin beef with a side of rice and a really easy cucumber salad.

Just grab a big bowl and toss together: 1 large cucumber (peeled, seeded, and sliced into half moons), ¼ cup sliced red onion, 1 carrot (cut into matchsticks), 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro leaves, juice of one lime, and fish sauce (or salt, if you’re boring like that) to taste.

Enjoy!
