Easy Marinated Flank Steak
I copied this recipe from a friend's collection 15 years ago. Since then I've gotten married and had two children. Now whenever we make steak on the grill, this is the recipe we usually use. It's also a tempting dish to serve when entertaining. It's earned me my compliments.
