For this low-calorie main dish, rub flank steak with salt, pepper, and garlic powder and broil until juicy and tender. A low-fat creamy sauce tops the final dish.


  • 1 pound beef flank steak
  • 2 tablespoons cracked black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt or kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Yogurt-Lime Sauce


  1. Preheat broiler. Score both sides of steak in a diamond pattern by making shallow diagonal cuts at 1-inch intervals.
  2. In a small bowl, combine black pepper, garlic powder, sea salt, and sugar. Sprinkle evenly over both sides of steak; rub in as much as you can with your fingers. Let stand, covered, for 10 minutes. Rub in the remaining mixture.
  3. Meanwhile, make Yogurt-Lime Sauce; cover and chill until serving time.
  4. Place steak on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 15 to 18 minutes or until medium doneness (160 degrees F.), turning once. Remove from heat; let stand for 10 minutes.
  5. Slice steak thinly across the grain. Serve with Yogurt-Lime Sauce.
