Marinade Ingredients

Simply whisk together the marinade ingredients, add them to a large baggie, add the steak, and refrigerate anywhere from one hour to overnight.

Whisk the marinade in a bowl

I think steak grills best if you take it out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature before you cook it. I usually set mine on the counter 30 minutes before cooking.

Grill the steak over medium high heat for about 4 minutes on one side, then 3 minutes on the other for medium rare. Cook a little longer on each side depending on your preference for doneness.

HINT: Flank steak is a lean, tougher cut of meat so be sure to slice it against the grain to help break up the muscle fibers.

HINT: If you’d like to use the extra marinade for a sauce, you can simply add it to a pan, bring to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes on a low boil. The sauce will reduce and thicken a bit and you can use it as a sweet gravy or as a sauce over vegetables or potatoes.
