An Asian-style marinade flavors this tender grilled steak from Isabel Fowler of Fairbanks, Alaska. It's an ideal summer entree, but you can enjoy it year-round...just broil it indoors instead.

•Score surface of the steak, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the remaining ingredients; add steak. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 2 hours, turning occasionally.
•Drain and discard marinade. Grill steak, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 10 minutes. To serve, thinly slice across the grain. Yield: 8 servings.
