Super Bowl Fixin's - Savory Steak Slices

Yes, January is just a party month this year. Just as we get all the Christmas decorations put away, celebrate the inauguration, it is time to start planning for the Super bowl [only ten more days till kickoff]. This is one of those recipes that serves a lot of people, tastes great, and you feel like you are serving something substantial. It is also something you can fix ahead of time so you are not rushing around in between quarters to get ready for the half time meal. Serve this with potato salad, baked beans, and some hot rolls.

1 1/2 pound flank steak
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup dark rum
2 tablespoons olive oil
watercress sprigs - garnish

Trim excess fat from steak wipe steak off with towel.
Combine soy sauce and rum in shallow dish and place the steak in mixture.
Refrigerate, covered turning steak occasionally for 24 hours.
Remove steak from mixture and brush lightly with oil.
Place steak on broiling pan and broil around 6 inches from heat, 1 minute on each side, then 5 minutes more on each side or until medium rare.
Let cool, occasionally brushing with pan juices.
Use immediately or refrigerate, covered until ready to use.
To serve, cut steak into thin slices on the diagonal. Arrange on serving platter with watercress sprigs as garnish. Set bread or rolls in basket nearby. Serves 15. Yum.
