Soy Grilled Flank Steak




All I can say is that this was one really great marinade. We loved it. I made it for grilled halibut and my family minus Miss Picky, loved it. Go figure they'd flip for fish these days. I didn't want to push my luck with the fish so just in case I also made it with a flank steak. Sort of Surf and Turf? 

The leftover steak was just as good in a salad the next day. There was no fish left. You could have picked me up off the floor that they loved it so much. That was a complete shock. We're really doing well with the fish on the menu lately. So fish is on the menu again this week.




Soy Grilled Flank Steak
Source: bbq.about.com

1 2-lb flank steak
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 chopped serrano chile
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients, except the halibut, in a small saucepan over a medium heat. Mix until honey is dissolved. Preheat grill on medium-high. Place the flank steak on the grill and cook for about 6 minutes per side, basting with the marinade. Grill until desired doneness. Transfer to a cutting board and let stand 5 minutes. Thinly slice steaks diagonally across the grain.

Leftovers are great in a salad the next day. Delicious on steak, fish or chicken, too.

  11. I love a great flank steak! My husband could eat beef every night of the week but we're really trying to eat more fish knowing that red meat isn't the best for us. As long as he can grill it - we'll eat it :) I love that this marinade can be used for fish too. I must try it!

  18. Oh how I love flank steak, especially on the grill, it reminds me of summer! Your's looks delicious and I like all the ingredients in your marinade! It's almost like mine, but you've kicked yours up a notch with the chili- I like that!

    Have a yummy weekend!

  19. I made the Corn Chowder recipe you posted awhile ago, and my husband and I loved it. I especially liked that 1% milk is used instead of cream. This flank steak sounds like a recipe I will use too.

  22. This is one of my favorite ways to make flank steak - I think the flavor of soy goes so well with it! And now my mouth is totally watering for it. Looks awesome!

  23. I love flank steak and I use a very, very similar marinade. It is great on chicken and pork tenderloin too. You'll use it for everything. And everyone loves it. I'm going to give your version with the chilies a try.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Count me in as another flank steak lover. We love to grill during the summer. My husband makes a similar marinade but has never added the chiles. Must give it a try. Thanks!

  26. Fantastic marinade. Wish I could get steak to turn out like that.

  27. Fish is a great food for kids and adults. Try to give them as much as possible. My picky son likes his fish teriyaki so who am I to change this. I give him exactly that and I get him to eat a lot of fish! The flank steak looks terrific very juicy and soft Carol!

  35. What a great idea! I have a Mark Bittman soy marinade that I used to love on flank steak - now The Child won't eat meat so I never get it. She will eat fish though so I'm going to try it on halibut - thanks for the inspiration!

  51. Can't have flank steak without a good marinade. It's what makes the steak taste so good. I like your recipe, but I would leave out the chile. Otherwise, it's perfect. I'd love to taste it on fish, which I eat a lot of these days.
