Adapted from Cooking Light, April 2009. Asian sauces such as hoisin and fish sauce are high in sodium and big on flavor. Use them sparingly to bring this dish to less than 500 mg sodium per serving.
3 tablespoons hoisin sauce 1 teaspoon bottled ground fresh ginger (or grate your own from fresh if you don't have bottled) 1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind 1 (1-lb.) flank steak, trimmed Cooking spray 2 cups thinly sliced seeded peeled cucumber 1/4 cup thinly vertically sliced red onion 1/4 cup matchstick-cut carrot 1 tablespoon sugar 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice 2 teaspoons fish sauce
1. Preheat broiler.
2. Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl. Brush steak with half of hoisin mixture. Place steak on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 6 minutes. Turn steak over; brush with remaining hoisin mixture. Broil 6 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Place steak on a cutting board; let stand 5 minutes.
3. Combine cucumber and remaining ingredients in a bowl; toss to combine. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices. Serve with cucumber salad. Makes 4 servings (3 oz. steak and 1/2 cup salad).
