I am looking for a Weight Watchers recipe for marinated flank steak. It was in recipe book from the late 60's or early 70's. I think it was called Japanese Flank Steak. I believe it used ginger as one of the ingredients.

I have a newer WW cookbook from a couple of years ago that has a recipe for marinated flank steak. It might be an updated version of the recipe you are looking for.
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp. honey
2 tsp. grated peeled fresh ginger (or 1 tsp. ground)
2 tsp. finely chopped fresh lemongrass
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp. dry sherry
pinch crushed red pepper
1 (1 lb) flank steak
2 tsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. salt
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
The directions (which are wordy) call for mixing the marinade ingredients (up to the flank steak above) in a gallon zip top bag and then add the steak. Refrigerate, turning occasionally overnight, or up to 24 hours. Remove meat from refrigerator 30 minutes before broiling.
Preheat broiler. Discard marinade and pat steak dry with a paper towel, then drizzle with the oil. Broil 3 inches from heat, turning once and sprinkling the salt on the cooked side, about 4 minutes a side. Season with pepper. Transfer the steak to a cutting board, let stand 2-3 minutes then cut on diagonal into 12 slices.
Hope this is helpful. I may have to make some myself :)
