Easy Marinated Flank Steak Recipe

Easy Marinated Flank Steak Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 beef flank steak (about 2 pounds)

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first seven ingredients. Add beef; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
  • 2. Drain beef, discarding marinade. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly.
  • 3. Grill beef, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from heat 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). To serve, thinly slice across the grain. Yield: 8 servings.
