This recipe was adapted from a gourmet and international recipe website. The flavors sound wonderful and I will be making this soon. The african recipe can also be found in the Zaar World Tour 2005 swap.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients, except steak, in a jumbo ziplock bag that has been placed in a glass bowl for support. After scoring the flank steak place it in the bag. Seal the bag and refrigerate at least 20 minutes or up to overnight.
  2. Heat the grill or a grill pan on the stove. Remove the flank steak from the bag and pat dry with paper towels. Grill 4 to 5 minutes per side or until done to taste. Let rest 5 to 10 minutes before carving before serving.

I followed the recipe exactly. I really did not care for this marinade. It tasted oily and did not have much flavor. All I could taste was the lemon. Thumbs down here.

The flavor of this steak was delicious and very balanced! No ingredient over-powered the other, and even with seemingly unrelated ingredients from different cuisines, like soy sauce (Asian), hot sauce (South Western) and turmeric (Indian), they all blended together very harmoniously. I thought of it as a melting pot marinade and wanted to try it just because of the interesting combination. I marinated the steak for about 12 hours and then grilled it for 8 minutes at 375? on the George Foreman indoor grill. I served it with with South African "vetkoek" (Bread Machine Recipe) and Braised Cabbage/Tanzanian and my DH discovered that the 3 recipes together make a delicious sandwich. Thanks for sharing this one, Happy Hippie! Made and enjoyed for the February 2012 African Recipe Tag game. :)
