I know what you are probably wondering what is up with the title of this recipe, "Wasabi Bloody MARRIED Flank Steak". Well this week for sure, it is "Married" instead of "Mary" as my husband and I are celebrating 25 years of marital bliss. (For all of you math scholars out there, I am still umm...29ish) What a better way to celebrate than with this delicious and easy to prepare, Wasabi Bloody Married Flank Steak and a little bubbly.

You are going to just love these wasabi bloody married flank steaks as they are FULL of FLAVOR but LOW on CARBS (carbohydrates).  Wasabi Bloody Married Flank Steaks are a breeze to throw together, happily gluten-free (if you hold the Worcestershire sauce), Paleo-friendly, diabetic friendly, low-fat, so whats not to love...!

Every once in a while, I love a good spicy bloody Mary cocktail. What about you?

I love the fresh clamato juice, lemons, celery salt, horseradish, fresh cracked pepper and a good dash of tobacco sauce to spice things up. If there are loads of celery stalks, lemons, olives and shrimps hanging off my drink, even better yet. Living in Hong Kong has its pluses but one thing you cannot find any where here is just plain old fresh grated horseradish and not that horseradish "cream" sauce. So when you're in Rome... or in Hong Kong, use what you have and that is loads of fresh wasabi.

If you're a Paleo diet extremist, then you cannot use the squeezed bottle kind of wasabi as it usually has some starches or green dye. However, freshly grated wasabi or horseradish is completely acceptable. You will want to adjust the amount of wasabi or swap out for horseradish, whatever suits your fancy. Wasabi/horseradish will clear out your sinuses so go easy on the stuff until you taste it.

Wasabi Bloody MARRIED Flank Steak is a less than 30 minute wonder recipe and is perfect for grilling season. The longer you marinate the flank steaks the better and overnight in the best but 1 hour in the minimum. You could also use other cuts of steaks and that would be equally delicious. The cost of beef is every expensive here in Hong Kong, so Flank steak is a great alternative. As you know, you only need to sear the flank steaks for a couple of minutes on each side and you can make the Wasabi Bloody Mary Salsa up to 8 hours in advance but only takes about 10 minutes to throw together. I served my Wasabi Bloody Married Flank Steaks with big tossed spinach salad as I am all about getting my iron allotment.

Steaks go so well with the Bloody Married Salsa but you could also use lamb, grilled pork or even a hearty fish. Have fun with the recipe. When I make it next, I plan on adding some grilled shrimp too.

I grilled my flanks steaks with just a little seasoned salt and fresh cracked pepper out on our gas grill but you could also use a grill pan on a burner in your home or pan fry in an iron skillet so the steaks gets deliciously seared.

To my dearest husband, the biggest Bam's Kitchen fan and supporter, Bam's Kitchen QA analyst and loving husband, these last 25 years have been the best one could ever wish for.  Soul Mates forever!

Wishing everyone a super weekend!

Wasabi Bloody MARRIED Flank Steak

Seared Seasoned BBQ flank steak garnished with a fresh tomato virgin bloody Mary salsa spiked with a dollop of wasabi, celery salt and a dash of Worcestershire sauce.

  • Cook: 30 mins


Grilled Flank Steaks

flank steak - 12-16 ounces (depends on how hungry your crew is)

worcestershire sauce - 2 tablespoon

garlic - 1 clove crushed and finely chopped (or 1/2 teaspoon ground garlic)

olive oil - 2 tablespoon

Bloody Mary Salsa

tomatoes - 2 cups sliced (I used the little Malaysian sweet cherry tomatoes)

celery - 3 stalks and leaves chopped ( 2 tops of the leaves reserved for a fun garnish)

onion - 2 tablespoons finely minced

flat parsley - 1/4 cup chopped

celery salt - 1 teaspoon (if you don't have this just add more celery and a little extra salt to taste)

lemon juice - juice of 1 lemon

worcestershire sauce - 1 tablespoon

wasabi - 1 teaspoon-2 teaspoon (depending on how hot you like it- can exchange with horseradish)

salt and pepper - to taste (for both the Bloody Mary salsa and also for flank steaks)


1Place your flank steaks in a tupperware container and marinate with Worcestershire sauce, garlic and olive oil, pepper for at least an hour or even up to overnight. (Do not place salt in the marinade as this will dry out the steak instead salt and pepper steaks before putting them on the grill)

2Bloody Mary Salsa: Combine tomatoes, celery, onion, flat parsley, celery salt, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, wasabi or horseradish, salt and pepper and set aside while you grill the steaks.

3Salt and pepper the flank steaks on both sides and grill on medium high heat for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Your goal is a medium rare steak, pink inside. If you overcook the steak it will end up too tough. Allow your steak to rest covered with aluminum for about 5-7 minutes covered.

4Thinly slice flank steaks across the grain. Place a couple of large dollops of Bloody Mary Salsa on top. Enjoy!

  • Firstly, congratulations on the big 25 years! You must share so many wonderful memories of your time together. 🙂 and if my husband served me this steak and salad for dinner for our wedding anniversary, I’d be delighted! It’s my kind of meat and veg idea! Congrats to the lovely couple!

    Happy Anniversary! Hope your celebration is terrific. How could it not be, with this wonderful recipe? Love this! So much flavor. Thank you.

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you John. We need to pair this recipe up with one of your delicious cocktails!

  • Eha

    Happy Anniversary Bobbi to you and your husband: have a most wonderful celebratory week and look forwards to the next quarter of a century to come! And am certain all of us are somewhat bad in maths: of course you are not past the 29 mark 😀 !! Altho’ having passed that number quite some time ago, I can assure you that the tales it’s ‘all down the hill’ from there are absolutely and totally false!! Lovely steak dish: juicy and moreish!! Real Bloody Mary’s . . .not often, but have a tradition they are the first alcoholic drink [if good dry champagne not within reach] on a Sunday morning and on any flight out of the country!!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Eha! I am so glad to hear that the best is yet to come!! You are my inspiration. I love a good bloody Mary on a flight too, how coincidental is that! Great minds think alike. Have a super weekend!

  • Congratulations to you both Bobbi 🙂

  • Dear BAM,

    Congrats and happy 25th anniversary! And LOL at the title.

    Flank steak is a cheaper yet so tasty cut of beef. I love a good Bloody Mary too especially when there’s cooked prawns and a few slices of grilled bacon hanging off the glass

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thanks so much! I am glad you liked the title. I have no idea what that does to SEO but it is fun nonetheless.
      Ohh and grilled bacon also hanging off your bloody Mary does sound so good, actually that is over the top.

  • hotlyspiced

    Happy Anniversary, Bam. A quarter of a century is a wonderful milestone. You have cooked a dish with great flavours and I love the colours and the textures. Lots of flavour here and I do love freshly grated horseradish xx

  • Happy Anniversary, Mr. and Mrs. Bam!! What a lovely tribute, Bobbi, and this dish to celebrate is incredible!

  • Another great idea, never had thought of using wasabi on steak.
    Happy Anniversary to you!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Raymond! Have you ever had kobe beef seared and then just dipped the edge into wasabi soy slurry? A must try at least once. Take care

  • Happy, happy Anniversary to you and your husband Bobbie! Haha – I chuckled out loud when I read how old you still are after 25 years! 🙂
    By the way, I am not a big beef eater – but your steak looks so juicy and that bloody MARRIED salsa sounds so good with a hint of wasabi – I think i might have to grab me a piece!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Shashi, so you are one of those budding mathematicians too…LOL I am actually not a big beef eater either but sometimes my body just craves the iron. I need a big bowl of spinach to go on the side too. Have a super weekend!

  • Happy Anniversary! And what a fabulous way to commemorate such an occasion!

    I’ve never tried wasabi with steak, but it sounds fantastic! Definitely a must-try! Hope you have a wonderful anniversary and 4th of July!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Kathleen! Wishing you a safe move and a restful holiday.

  • Happy 25th anniversary!!!! What a milestone in a marriage! And what a wonderful dish to celebrate with. Yes, I do partake in a spicy bloody mary at time and just love the flavors. What a great idea to marry it with flank steak!!

  • Happy belated Anniversary! Quite a milestone. Love this recipe.
