Marinated Flank Steak

Ingredients

1 1/2 lbs flank steak (have the butcher tenderize it at the store! It matters.)

3/4 c of vegetable oil

1/4 c soy sauce

3 Tbsp honey

2 Tbsp vinegar

1 tsp powdered garlic

1/2 tsp ginger

6 green onions finely chopped

Preparation

Combine all ingredients except the flank steak in a bowl and stir together. Put the marinade with the tenderized flank steak in the fridge to marinate for 2 hours or overnight. Remove the steak from the marinade. Grill the steak for 7 – 8 minutes each side depending on thickness. You can also broil the steak in the oven.

Lemon Marinade

INGREDIENTS

    • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
    • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
    • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt (kosher or sea), or to taste
    • 4 strips of lemon zest
    • 3 cloves garlic, crushed with the side of a cleaver or minced
    • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh parsley
    • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil, cilantro, dill, oregano, or a mix of all four
    • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
    • Add a tsp of sugar and dijon (optional)

PREPARATION

    1. Combine the lemon juice, hot pepper flakes, cracked pepper, and salt in a nonreactive (glass, ceramic, or stainless steel) bowl and whisk until the salt crystals are dissolved. Add the lemon zest, garlic, parsley and basil. Stir or whisk in the olive oil. The virtue of this marinade is its freshness: Use it within 1 to 2 hours of making. Stir again before using.
