"I enjoyed the flavor of these steaks very much. I think I will marinate them overnight next time."
"This is okay. The barbecue sauce kind of overpowers, which is good if you like barbecue! Next time we'll try a different marinade for some uniqueness.~ Theresa"
"This is one of my family's favorite new ways to eat flank steak- delicious!!"
"We made this last night but used a top sirlion instead (it was on sale), it was great. The sauce is a nice touch at the table but next time I will warm it up in the microwave first."
