Grilled Flank Steak

In all my years on this good green earth I have never grilled a flank steak. It’s just a cut of meat that I never bought. Never thought to buy until now.

I got the marinade for this recipe from a site called
Use Real Butter. The owner of this fabulous blog is Jen. Aside from the beautiful pictures of food that she takes, the rest of her photography that is non-food related, is stunning. If you visit her site make sure to link over to her Photo Blog. I guarantee you that you will be inspired. I know I was.

While oogling over all her gorgeous photos I came upon the lovely flank steak marinade and knew I had to try it. It smelled so good in the bowl that I actually carried it around the house and made everyone smell it. I really did. They all said it smelled great, and it did. It tasted pretty awesome too.

Marinade for Flank Steak
Printable recipe
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons mustard
1 ½ teaspoons pepper
1 t garlic powder
¼ cup vegetable oil
¼ cup lemon juice (fresh squeezed please)
¼ cup red wine vinegar
¼ cup chopped parsley

Like Jen, I placed the marinade and steak in a zip lock bag and into the fridge it went. Marinate for 24 hours for best results. We grilled this steak for about 3 -4 minutes on each side.

To use as a sauce – pour remaining marinade into a pot and bring to a boil. You can add some cornstarch mixed with water to thicken it up a bit.

Flank steak is one of our family's favorite cuts. If you like it, try skirt steak too.
