My husband and I went to heaven the night we made this! We had never had flank steak before so this was something new. Now we'll be making it all the time. I used 1 tbsp. veg. oil (didn't have any olive) and 1 tbsp. sesame oil since since the rest of the reciple had an Asian theme to it. I also added about 1/2 to 1 tbsp. hot red pepper flakes. It certainly didn't add any spice but it may have added to the flavor so I'll do that again next time. I marinated it for two days, grilled it med. to med.-rare and sliced it real thin against the grain. Superb! IMPORTANT: You must slice this cut of meat thin and against the grain otherwise it won't be tender.



This is an amazing marinade. I left it for 24 hours on a tougher piece of meat....and it came out wonderful. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe.



Yummy! And so easy to make. I used a flank steak, scored on both sides, and marinated for about 24 hrs. Great taste and it came out surprisingly tender, for a flank steak. Next time, I will try to marinate it even longer. This marinade would work well with any cut of beef.
