With the warm weather this week it's the perfect time to get in some early grilling with my favorite flank steak recipe. A good marinated flank steak is a real treat! I enjoy it!

For those of you who enjoy a nice piece of meat but don’t want a lot of the fat, flank steak has one of the least amounts of fat of any other cuts of beef. I like to marinate this steak for a while so plan on 4-6 hours of marinating (even overnight) and it will really make a difference.

You'll Need:

2 pound flank steak with membrane removed

¼ cup of red wine vinegar

½ cup of Worcestershire Sauce

¼ cup of soy sauce

¼ cup of oil (vegetable or canola)

2 cloves of garlic, minced well

2 tablespoons of brown mustard

1 lemon juiced

ground pepper

How to Put it Together:

In a mixing bowl, mix red wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, oil, garlic, mustard and lemon. Wisk or blend all ingredients, place mixture in a freezer/zip lock bag, add flank steak and marinate flat for 4-6 hours minimum or preferably overnight.

When steak is done marinating preheat grill on high, remove steak and add generous amount of fresh pepper.

Grill steak about 6-7 minutes on each side for medium rare, grill less or more for preferred doneness.

Once steak is off the grill let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. I suggest slicing against the muscle making about ¼ inch slices.
