Grilled Flank Steak



The weather here has finally started warming up, the evenings are beginning to stay lighter for longer, and therefore, grilling season has officially kicked off ! My days are always a little brighter when I can look forward to a night of grilling! I found this recipe over at Our Best Bites. I changed the title of the recipe because I thought it might be a bit too cheesy to call it “Sweet and Savory flank steak”, but the title does fit the dish. The marinade consisted of some of my favorite ingredients that I was excited to try together.  The results of the marinade was a very flavorful steak that was well received by the family.

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 cup soy sauce

1 cup pineapple juice

1 Tablespoon grated ginger

4 to 5 garlic cloves, minced

1 1/2 to 2 pounds flank steak

Combine ingredients for marinade. Whisk together until combined. Remove 1/4 cup of the marinade and set aside.

Score the steak with a knife, cutting a 1/8 inch diagonal line down both sides. This will help to tenderize the meat. Please steak in a Ziploc bag and pour marinade over it. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Take out of refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling.

Please steak on grill and cook for 5 to 10 minutes per side, depending on the size. Use the reserved 1/4 cup marinade to brush over steak in the last few minutes of grilling. Remove from grill and let stand 5 minutes before cutting, letting the juices rest. Cut steak against the grain, in thin slices to serve.
