"In our neck of the woods, a flank steak is a flat, heavily muscled cut of meat. For every recipe that calls for flank, I substitute london broil. This is a GREAT marinade, this is straight to the recipe box. The entire family loved it - and I think the beef would really work well on a green salad too."
