I know I’ve been posting a lot of recipes lately. But if you saw how ill fitting my clothes were these days, you’d see why. Summer has wreaked havoc on any kind of exercise routine or restraint when it comes to food. It’s ok though. I’ll get a hold of it…eventually.
For now, let’s do some grilling! This is one of my all-time favorite flank steak marinades. It’s not too many ingredients, which is always good, aaaaaaand it has brown sugar. Done.
½ C. soy sauce
3 T. brown sugar
2 T. lemon juice
1 chopped onion
4 cloves garlic—pressed
¼ t. pepper
2 T. oil
I usually buy my flank steaks from Costco. Two come in a package. I would double the marinade recipe because, believe me, you’ll want leftovers so go ahead and grill both steaks at the same time.
Using a sharp knife, score the flank steaks lightly in a criss-cross pattern (you can see it in the grilling photo below) on both sides and then put both steaks and the marinade into a gallon size ziploc bag. Here it shall remain overnight.
Now take those deliciously infused steaks out and grill! I do high heat on both sides for about 1-2 minutes each to sear the meat. Then I turn down the heat a bit and do a few more minutes on each side.
Remove from grill. Let it sit for a minute so the juices absorb back into the meat. Then cut into strips and enjoy!
Perfect for an summer BBQ with family and friends! Happy grilling!
