  • 2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 pinches salt plus additional for seasoning
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 1/4 pounds lean flank steak, patted dry
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed


  1. 1. Using the flat side of a knife or a mortar and pestle, mash together the garlic and pinch of salt until the mixture forms a paste; transfer to a small bowl. Mix in the honey, lemon juice and soy sauce; slowly whisk in 1 teaspoon oil.
  2. 2. Place the steak in a shallow dish or bowl. Pour the marinade over steak and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  3. 3. Heat the grill to high. Remove steak from marinade and season lightly with salt and black pepper. Transfer to grill; close the cover and cook to desired doneness, about 5 minutes a side for medium rare. Let meat rest on a foil-lined cutting board 5 minutes.
  4. 4. Meanwhile, toss the asparagus with remaining oil and sprinkle with pinch of salt. Place in a grill basket; close cover and cook 2 to 3 minutes a side, until tender. Slice meat thinly and serve with asparagus.
