Pomegranate Thyme Marinated Flank Steak

Trim fat from flank steak, and lightly score the top of the steak in a crosshatch pattern. Combine 1/2 cup pomegranate juice, olive oil, vinegar, ginger, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Pour marinade in a large Ziplock bag with the flank steak and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.

Remove steak from bag, reserving left over marinade. Sear steak in a grill pan or skillet (or grill it outside!) on medium high heat, for about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove to a cutting board, and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice the steak thinly against the grain of the meat (this is important!).

Meanwhile, bring the leftover marinade and 1/2 cup of pomegranate juice to a boil in a small sauce pan and reduce by at least half, or until the sauce coats the back of a spoon (about 10 minutes). Serve the sliced steak with the pomegranate reduction on the side.
