Steak with Ginger Plum Barbecue Sauce ~My Beef Recipe Grilling Experience~

I was invited to be a part of The Texas Beef Council's Beef Recipe Grilling Experience. The hardest part of the whole experience was trying to decide on which Original Beef Recipe I wanted to make. There were so many great choices it was so hard to just settle on one without changing my mind a time or two. 

My recipe choice for the Texas Beef Councils Grilling Recipe Experience is Grilled Steak with Ginger Plum Barbecue Sauce. I have a love for Asian cuisine so my eye kept going back to the steak with ginger plum sauce. It looked so good and I love Jasmine Rice. 

The marinade called for some tasty ingredients, plum sauce, ginger (oh how I love the fragrant smell of ginger), brown sugar, lemon juice, ketchup, soy sauce and garlic. How could you go wrong with that list of ingredients.


The marinade was quick to throw together and had a awesome amount of time to marinate. I just knew the flavor in the meat would just intensify after marinating for 6 hours. After we grilled the meat it was very tender and easy to slice, the veggies were crisp and the end result after plating this dish was fantastic. 

I loved the sauce to me it was more like a glaze which made it that much better. I highly recommend this beef dish or any other recipe choices they have listed. Here is a quick reference link to all the recipes on the Texas Beef Councils Recipe Grilling Experience.

Tossing the marinade ingredients together.




the marinade smelled so good.



Placed the meat and the marinade in a large gallon size zip lock bag. Place in the refrigerator and marinade for a minimum of 6 hours or overnight at the longest. The longer it sits the better.
removing strings from pea pods.



Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 8 to 9 minutes for medium rare doneness, turning occasionally and basting with some of the reserved marinade during last 2 to 3 minutes of grilling. Remove; keep warm.




While your steaks are cooking start preparing the jasmine rice.




Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add carrots; stir-fry 5 minutes. Add pea pods and garlic; stir-fry 2 minutes. Place remaining marinade (that you had set aside earlier) in small saucepan; heat until warm.




Carve steak into thin slices. Season with salt and black pepper, as desired. Serve with steak, vegetables and rice. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
