- approximately 1 lb of flank steak
- 1 mango
- 2 cloves of fresh garlic
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Rinse steak and place in large ziplock bag.
Peel and cut mango. Peel and chop garlic. Place mango, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper in blender and mix until smooth.
Pour mixture into bag with steak. Close and place in the refrigerator. Allow to marinate for a minimum of 1 to 2 hours. (I like to put it in the refrigerator in the morning before work and then come back at night and cook it).
Grill for 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until steak is the way you like it. (I like to use my George Foreman grill for these steaks. It cooks both sides at the same time and it's easy to heat up and clean!)
Makes 2 to 3 servings. (If you are making this recipe just for yourself then I recommend using the leftovers in a salad or as a steak sandwich!)
PS - You can substitute the mango with strawberries for a slightly different but equally delicious and nutritious steak marinade!
