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


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


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag or shallow glass container, combine the first seven ingredients; mix well. Add steak and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Drain and discard marinade. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for rare, a meat thermometer should read 140°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Yield: 4 servings.
