  • 1 lb flank steak
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons soy sauce, divided
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 large pinch coarse salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 can (13.66 oz) coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoons sambal oelek (sriracha is fine, too)
  • Juice from one lime
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce

    Pierce the steak all over with a fork and place in a large sealable plastic bag. Add the olive oil, 3 tablespoons soy sauce, garlic salt, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Seal bag and marinate steak for an hour, and up to overnight.
