Flank Steak Recipe



  • 2 lbs flank steak
  • 2 to 3 tsp Ka`iulani Alaea Sea Salt with Garlic & Herbs
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp Ka`iulani Kona Coffee Spice

For The Marinade:

  • 3/4 cup saké
  • 1/2 cup mirin (sweet rice wine - no corn syrup)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp sugar

For the Sauce:

  • marinade (above)
  • 1 Tbsp additional Ka`iulani Kona Coffee Spice
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 to 2 green onions, chopped for garnish

1 Lightly score one side of the steak on the diagonal at 1-inch intervals.

2 In a dish large and deep enough to hold the meat and marinade, rub the steak with Ka‘iulani Alaea Sea Salt and 2 to 3 tablespoons Kona Coffee Spice. Make the marinade by combining saké, mirin, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and sugar, pour over meat, marinate overnight or at least 2 hours.

3 Preheat grill to high; when grill is hot, place steak on grill, cook about 3 minutes on each side or to desired doneness, re- move and let rest on a platter about 5 minutes before slicing.

4 Meanwhile, make the sauce: Strain the marinade; discard the remainder. Place the marinade in a small saucepan, whisk in the cornstarch and add the additional Kona Coffee Spice. Bring the mixture to a boil, lower heat, simmer and cook, stirring constantly, until sauce slightly thickens.

5 Slice meat against the grain, arrange on platter, spoon sauce over meat and sprinkle some green onion slices on top.

Variation: Instead of grilling, broil in oven 5 inches from the heat and 3 minutes on each side or to desired doneness.

Making a Wrappily Gift Bag


Article from December 15, 2014 via:


We love a beautifully wrapped gift, but sometimes you just need a gift bag—whether it’s for an overstuffed teddy bear, a baseball glove, or a sleeve of homemade cookies. No need to go buy something new, you can keep it eco-friendly and Wrappily-cute by fashioning our 100% recyclable and compostable paper into a custom made gift bag using this easy tutorial. (Seriously, we whipped-up the bags pictured here in just a few minutes!)

What you need:
1. Wrappily paper
2. Glue stick or double-sided tape
3. Scissors
4. Tape
5. Chipboard or cardboard
6. Twine, yarn, or ribbon
7. A single hole punch

First, some tips from our test crafters:

Size: To determine the dimensions of your bag, find a box that comfortably fits your gift item. Use this box to build your bag using this tutorial

Reinforce: These bags are fine as-is for lighter items, but if your gift item weighs over a few pounds you can reinforce your bag in these ways:

- Add structure by cutting out a piece of chipboard or cardboard to place at the bottom of the bag (simply trace the box for the correct size).

- Reinforce the handles by glueing a strip of chipboard or card stock to the inside of the bag where the handles attach. 

- Doubling up the paper will help the bag keep it's shape and give it more strength for heavier items.
