::Flank Steak Marinade::
Flank steak (typically about ½ lb. per person) + Marinade*
*Make one batch of this marinade per steak:
¾ cup oil
½ cup soy sauce (or gluten-free tamari sauce works great also)
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 ½ tsp. ground ginger
1 tablespoons garlic powder
2 green onions (sliced)Directions:
Score flank with a knife in a diamond pattern on both sides of each steak (you can skip this step if you are short on time).  Mix marinade ingredients in a zip lock bag and add flank steak (one recipe of marinade per steak).*** Massage mixture into the steak & marinade for at least 48 hours (the longer the better). Grill it on a BBQ at medium temperature. Grill on one side for 7 minutes. Flip and leave for 5 minutes (adding more time if you like it well done). Remove from grill. Let rest for about 5 minutes or so {under tented foil} before slicing at an angle. {If you do not have a BBQ I’m sure this can be done on a grill pan over your burner. It may not get the same results but I’m sure it will be close.}


***This is my mom Marilyn’s family recipe and she makes it this way, but I believe that the rest of her family does it a little bit different! They blend the marinade in a blender before adding it to the flank and reserve part of the un-used marinade to put on the steak afterwards. This was one of those stories where my mom read the recipe wrong and for years she made it her way. When we all discovered that her sisters made it the other way we were not as happy with the results! Gotta love family recipes! Both versions really do taste great and I think they have all had a good laugh about it from time to time.
Either way I hope this becomes one of your family’s favorite recipes too…ENJOY!
