For Phase One, flank steak is perfect for grilling. It has a full, rich flavor, yet its thin enough to grill in a flash. Here, we serve it as they do in Northern Italy, slathered with a garlic rub, grilled then sliced and served over peppery arugula greens.

Directions

  1. In small bowl, mash garlic and oil until a paste forms (you may also do this in the food processor.) Pay steaks dry with paper towel, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Rub garlic paste over both sides of steaks. Let sit for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill to high heat. Grill steak 5 to 7 minutes, until well-seared and browned. Flip; grill 3 to 5 minutes longer, until medium rare. To check, cut into meat with a knife and remove when meat is slightly less done than you want it to be. Transfer to cutting board; cover loosely with foil and let rest 10 minutes. Slice very thin, against the grain and at a slight angle.
  3. Arrange arugula on platter. Top with steak slices. Drizzle with any accumulated platter juices. Serve immediately.

This is a very tasty recipe. I used a cast iron grill pan to cook this steak. Lots of flavor, very satisfying for "diet" food.

This recipe was excellent. We cooked it one night for dinner without putting it over arugala. Just served the steak with surprise south beach mashed potatoes and the stewed tomatoes from the south beach diet book. There's just two of us so we had plenty of steak left over and used some the next day on salads for lunch and even had a little left over that we ate with eggs this morning. The South Beach Diet has been so easy for my husband and I as most of the foods are really good!

I was a little skeptic about this recipe because I don't really like the taste of meat, but I love to eat it. I usually put a large dose of many different spices on my steaks but I though I would give this a try and I am glad I did. I was a real light flavor but really good. I will definetly use this again!
