1 can Ocean Spray® Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
1 cup hoisin sauce
3/4 cup diced mango
2 green onions, minced
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 cloved garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon orange zest
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 pound beef skirt or flank steak
1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 whole heads romaine halves
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/4 cup Ocean Spray® Craisins® Original Dried Cranberries
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro


Combine marinade ingredients in medium bowl and whisk until combined. Place half the marinade in small bowl and reserve for basting; cover and refrigerate. Place remaining marinade in gallon ziptop bag. Slice beef into 1/4 inch wide strips across the grain. Place beef into bag with marinade and refrigerate 2 hours, or overnight.

Prepare a gas or charcoal grill for medium-high heat. Soak 16 (6-inch) wooden skewers in water for 10 minutes. Remove beef from bag; discard marinade. Thread beef onto skewers.

Split romaine heads inhalf lengthwise, leaving root end attached. Whisk together 1/4 cup olive oil and balsamic vinegar in small bowl. Drizzle over lettuce halves; sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Brush grill rack with remaining 2 Tablespoons oil; place skewers and lettuce halves on rack. Grill skewers uncovered 4-6 minutes; baste frequently with reserved marinade and turn occasionally. Grill romaine halves 1-2 minutes per side, or until slightly charred and wilted. Place romaine halves on platter and top with skewers. Garnish by sprinkling with Craisins and chopped cilantro.

This is a very appealing dish for those who enjoy eating barbecued beef. I am going to give this recipe a try because of how easy it is to make.
