Jump to Recipe

Perhaps wishful thinking, but my urge to take this dinner show on the road (and by “on the road” I mean my back deck grill) is becoming undeniable! Longing for the convenience of less dishes, more time outside, that marvelously meaty charred flavor that only the grill can achieve- just yes, yes and YES!

Last week blessed with a 60 degree day and not a cloud in the pale blue sky, my dreams were answered and I finally got a chance to throw another “shrimp on the bar-bee”

Well, in this case it was a Flank Steak.. but you know what I mean!

I whisked up a simple, savory, subtly sweet and spicy Miso based bath for my beefy friend, and the results were PURE MAGIC! Oozing with Umami goodness and less than 5 minutes to make, I unapologetically ask you.. “why the flank not!?!”

Ingredients for 5 MINUTE Miso-Ginger Marinade

ingredients for 5 MINUTE Miso-Ginger Marinade

White miso paste or “Shiro”, which has more a mellow and delicate flavor than Red or Yellow miso paste.

Garlic & Ginger : Fresh garlic clove and ginger root is recommended.

Soy Sauce: Coconut Amino would also be fine if trying to remain Gluten Free.

Brown Sugar or Honey: for a touch of sweetness

Oil: I used canola oil, a different high smoke point oil would be fine.

Gochujang: A fermented Chile paste concentrate that adds spice and an umami complexity. If you don’t have this ingredient try using Sriracha instead.

How to Make Miso-Ginger Marinade?

Well it literally takes 5 MINUTES!

Simply whisk all ingredients together in mixing bowl and Viola!

Add your protein or vegetables of choice, cover, and let marinade in refrigerator for anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours!
