The flank steak needs to marinate for at least four hours before cooking.


Chop the onion. Mix olive oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, and cumin. Add the chopped onion and crushed garlic. Add the flank steak and leave to marinate for at least 4 hours, turning the steak half way through.

Preheat the broiler. Scrape the onion off the steak. Strain the marinade and brush it on the meat; grind on a little salt. Broil under high heat until steak is rare (internal temperature of 125 degrees F.), without turning.

Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper. Let stand 5 minutes.

Slice crosswise about 1/4 inch thick. Serve with Thai Rice and a cucumber salad.
