korean bbq beef and coconut rice

this is by far one of my most favorite meals.  i know the family would agree because every time i make it, they gobble it down but i try to save it as a "treat" and only make it once a month or so because it is a bit higher in calories than i prefer for dinner and it's a little higher in saturated fat but it is worth it!

back in the summer of 06' we spent a week in california with my husband's side of the family and during our stay, his cousin made for all of us this most delicious marinated flank steak.   fast forward a few years later when we were vacationing again together in st. george and she added coconut rice to the dish making it a five star experience for all of us.  i love it so much. thanks sarah!!

korean bbq beef
1.5 - 2 lb lean beef flank steak (costco sells great, lean flank steak in packages of three)

Coconut rice tastes just like white rice really no flavor but I guess it's more for the nutritional value, right?
The beef was good U Used NY STRIP slices and used my George Foreman to cook.
