Easy Marinated Grilled Flank Steak

    What a lucky recipe to find for we butcher our own beef. Was searching for something to make with flank steak. It was marinating for 2 days, and maybe could have sat in the marinade a few more. It was chewy. But delicious. 1 more package left, will try it again for the flavors were great. VFE

    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

    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.
