Grilled Flank Steak Recipe

Grilled Flank Steak Recipe

My sister, Kathy, and I often exchange recipes - I give her my desserts, and she gives me her entrees. This recipe is from her, and it's become a favorite of mine for serving to company. The meat and vegetables can be prepared ahead of time...when the company arrives, I just fire up the grill!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:5 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 beef flank steak (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 green pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 yellow or sweet red pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 3 carrots, cut into julienned strips

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Pour 3/4 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the beef. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Grill flank steak, uncovered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a skillet, saute vegetables in reserved marinade until crisp-tender. Thinly slice steak across the grain. Serve with vegetables. Yield: 5 servings.
