Tender Flank Steak Recipe

Tender Flank Steak Recipe

"This mildly marinated flank steak is my son's favorite," reports Gayle Bucknam of Greenbank, Washington. "I usually slice it thinly and serve it with twice-baked potatoes and a green salad to round out the meal. Leftovers are great for French dip sandwiches."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 beef flank steak (1 pound)

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first seven ingredients; add steak. Seal bag and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Grill, covered, over medium-hot 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°). Yield: 4 servings.
