"I always keep a flank steak in the freezer for unexpected company," writes Betty Graham of Sun City, California. "This recipe has often saved me when our son appears on the doorstep. The easy four-ingredient marinade provides delicious flavor."

    This was my first experience with flank steak, too. But for me this recipe is missing something. I chose to grill indoor on my cast iron giddle pan instead of the charcoal bbq, and maybe that affected the flavor? I'm really not a fan of lemon pepper seasoning, but it was worth the try.

    I used this recipe the first time I ever tried flank steak and I was very pleasently surprised. Very easy to make. I recommend cooking this a little slower with a little less heat than what you would normally do for steak. I like to use the warming rack on my grill
