California-Thai flank steak is an exotic steak that’s incredibly tender, aromatic, and juicy with flavors that melt in your mouth. The characteristic aroma of ginger, lemon grass, soy sauce, honey, and rice vinegar add a unique sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and umami flavor in every bite, true to the magic of the multi-flavor Thai cuisine. This sumptuous flank steak is marinated and often served with some basmati rice for an even more accentuated taste. Top it all with a spicy soup and enjoy the meal, Thai style!

Health Benefits

The delicacy is a good source of protein, iron, and magnesium. Proteins help in maintaining the body tissues and with the growth of the muscles. Consumption of meat helps in blood formation, increasing hemoglobin levels, and helps in the functioning of the brain and the nervous system. Since beef is rich in iron, it helps in preventing anemia.

Trivia

Did you know the word ‘steak’ is believed to have come from an old Norse or Saxon word, “steik”? The word means “meat on a stick”. However, steak nowadays is a slice of meat cut for roasting, grilling or frying. There are sixteen different primary cuts of steak which range from Sirloin to Rib.

The costliest steak in the world is the A5 kobe strip steak.  A single steak can cost more than $700. The cows which are the source of this meat are bred solely for perfect marbling, that is, the way fat is placed around the muscle. This saturated fat is healthy and the steak is heavenly. The “wagyu” steak produced by these cows is the best steak in the world!
