1 flank steak
1 cup fresh cuts pineapple chunks
salt and pepper for seasoning
Nonstick cooking spray

10 ounces fresh baby spinach
1 red bell pepper, julienned
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

1/2 cup natural peanut butter (no sugar added)
1/2 cup light coconut milk
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons red curry paste
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
Optional: srirachi sauce for extra heat

Prep Time: 15 minutes


Preheat oven to broiler setting, place rack under broiler. Season steak on both sides with salt and pepper.

Spray shallow, broiler proof baking pan with nonstick spray.  Place flank steak on one side of the pan and the pineapple chunks on the other, making sure the pineapple is slightly mounded.

Place under broiler for 5-7 minutes or until steak is nicely browned.  Flip steak to the other side and stir pineapple slightly.  Broil for about another 5 minutes, or until desired doneness.  Remove steak from broiler pan and let rest on cutting board, tented with aluminum foil, for about 10 minutes.

Combine spinach, red pepper and red onion in a bowl.  Set aside.  After cooling for 5 minutes, add pineapple.

In a blender add peanut butter, coconut milk, sesame oil, lime juice, soy sauce, honey red curry paste and ginger.  Blend until well combined.

Slice steak and serve over spinach.  Top with Peanut Sauce.
