Expert Tips

Serve these flank steak slices and grilled nectarines with hot cooked orzo mixed with a little olive oil and chopped fresh thyme.

“Speed-scratch” your marinade: Skip the wine, soy sauce, sherry and honey. Instead, add 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, 3 tablespoons sliced green onions and 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic to 1 cup purchased Oriental-style salad dressing or marinade.
