Marinated Flank Steak

Marinated Flank Steak

Anyone who knows me knows that I love to grill! Not just in the summer, but pretty much all year 'round. This steak is one of my absolute favorites to toss on the grill. Flank steak is a relatively inexpensive cut of meat and with this fabulous marinade, you'll be amazed by its delicious flavor.

Serves 4-6


2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp grated ginger
1 pressed clove garlic
2 1/2 - 3 lb flank steak


Place all of the ingredients in a glass bowl except the steak and stir. Add the steak and coat with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or up to overnight, turning occasionally. 

Remove the meat from the refrigerator 1 hour before cooking to allow it to come to room temperature.

This steak can be either grilled or cooked in the oven. Preheat the grill to high heat or your oven to 400˚F.

If grilling the steak, brush the grill racks with oil. Grill the steak over medium-high heat for 10-20 minutes, flipping once, or until the meat is 135-160˚F, depending on how you like it cooked. Remove the meat to a cutting board and tent it with foil. Allow the meat to rest for 5 minutes before slicing it against the grain. 

If cooking the steak in the oven, place the meat in a lightly oiled pan and roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the steak is 135-160˚F, depending on how you like it cooked. Place the meat on a cutting board and tent with foil. Allow it to rest for 5 minutes before slicing it against the grain. Serve with a side of roasted potatoes or rice, and steamed green beans.
