Chef Marcus Guiliano ~ Aroma Thyme Restaurant

  • 1 lb Grassfed flank steak
  • 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped thyme
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 4 cups pure pressed pomegranate juice
  • ½ cup safflower oil

Marinate flank steak in rosemary, thyme, pepper, ½ cup of pomegranate juice and oil the day before.

Take the remaining 3 ½ cups of juice and slowly reduce it to about ½ cup. The juice will turn into a thick syrup. That is your sauce.

Grill the flank steak until the desired temperature, my recommendation is med-rare.

Slice thinly against the grain and drizzle with pomegranate syrup.

Chef notes: There are plenty of health benefits to eating grass fed meat, but how about the pomegranates? Tufts University discovered that this highly under-consumed fruit is a powerful antioxidant. They designed a scale to measure the potency of foods and vitamins. Pomegranates scored a 4000 compared to vitamin C at 100, carrots at 210, broccoli at 800 and berries at 1200-2400. Pomegranate juice can be bought at the health food store and is an excellent energy drink.
