Balsamic Marinated Flank Steak

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

I was surprised by this recipe in that you only marinade the meat 20-30 minutes. It is great when you find a steak on sale and want to cook it that night. I did tweak it a bit by adding in some freshly minced garlic to kick it up just a bit. Turned out great for a weeknight meal for the family served with buttered noodles and spinach salad.

Wow, this was a pleasant surprise for us. I was out of soy sauce and worchestershire sauce so I needed a different marinate. This was fast, easy and delicious. I marinated for about 1.5 hours and it was too cold to grill so I broiled it. Same time. Came out perfect. Thank you.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a resealable bag and mix together. Then add the flank steak and reseal the bag and turn bag several times to coat the meat with the marinade. Refrigerate 20-30 minutes, turning once or twice.
  2. Preheat grill to high for 20 minutes (while the meat is marinading). Remove meat from bag and sprinkle fresh ground pepper over the steak before placing on grill. Grill steak 5-6 minutes and then turn over and grill until done (3-4 more minutes for medium rare; 5-6 minutes for medium - depends on thickness of steak and temperature of grill).
  3. Remove steak to a platter and tent with foil and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
