We just got a brand new grill for the patio so I decided to look around on the web for an interesting marinade.
I found this recipe on the website, allrecipes.com – it sounded yummy, so I decided to give it a try (I did tweak the ingredients a bit).
Flank steak is super affordable, so it’s a great option for a weeknight or backyard meal and this marinade tenderizes the meat very nicely. This also works great when sliced and used for fajitas – without the tortillas of course!
Just make sure that you leave enough time for the marinade to work it’s magic on the flank steak – you need to let it sit about 6 hours so plan ahead – it’s totally worth the wait, I promise.
I paired this recipe with the Sugar Free Goddess Greek Villager Salad.
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 – 2 pound flank steak
- In a medium bowl, mix the oil, soy sauce, vinegar, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic, and ground black pepper. Place meat in a shallow glass dish. Pour marinade over the steak, turning meat to coat thoroughly. Cover, and refrigerate for 6 hours.
- Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
- Oil the grill grate. Place steaks on the grill, and discard the marinade. Grill meat for 5 minutes per side, or to desired done-ness.
