Number of Servings: 4


    1 1/2 lbs. flank steak
    1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
    1/4 c fresh lime juice
    1 tbsp. Asian fish sauce
    1/4 tsp. (or more) chili paste
    1/4 tsp. sugar substitute
    1 c coursely chopped cilantro
    1/2 c thinly sliced scallions
    1 lb. green beans, trimmed
    salt and freshly ground black pepper


Heat grill or grill pan to high. Rub steak on both sides with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until desired doneness. Four minutes on each side for med. rare. Remove from heat and set on cutting board for 5 minutes.

Whisk together lime juice, fish sauce, chili paste, sugar substitute, cilantro, and scallions into a large mixing bowl.

Heat a saucepan of salted water until boiling. Add beans until cooked- crisp and tender, about 3 minutes. Drain.

Thinly slice meat across the grain. Toss with lime juice mixture, adding any meat juices that have accumulated on the cutting board. Add beans, toss, and serve.

Makes 4 servings.

**I recommend decreasing the cilantro and increasing the scallions. The cilantro can be a bit overbearing. Delicious!**

    This recipe is from "The South Beach Diet Quick & Easy Cookbook." I was glad to see someone saved me the trouble of entering the recipe. I loved this, and so did my husband. I did notice that the meat got tastier after it sat awhile in the sauce, so next time I'll let it sit a little before serving. - 11/27/10

    Really tasty-- I loved the way the beef soaked up the dressing. Definitely halve the amount of cilantro/coriander as suggested. I also added fresh sliced celery sticks to up the fresh veges intake and it worked really well with the green beans. Will be making this one again! - 2/3/09
