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. :)

I really like flank steak and this was a great way to cook it. I made the marinade, added the fresh, scored flank steak and put it in the freezer to have at a later time. It turned out great and the 4 minutes a side was great for a very rare steak in the thickest part - just how I like it! We had this with Mashed Potatoes With Corn & Cheese and carrots. Made for Kittencal's Grilling Game. Thanks Lauralie41! :)

Great marinade! I was going to grill on bbq, but it rained, so I broiled the flank steak. Turned out great. I have fresh oregano in the garden, and the flavor of that really came through. I am going to use this marinade on a chicken, too!

This was delicious. It made the fat on the meat taste so good I wished I hadn't used such a lean cut. I think you could use this to marinate anything you wanted to grill or broil. I think I will!

We all liked this very much. I did feel that it was a bit too oily but that can easily be cut down next time.

Very tasty marinade. It is such a interesting flavor; a bit of heat, but not too hot, a bit of sweet (I thought), but not too sweet. I marinated for about 60 minutes, and cooked it on the stove top (about 15-20 min in a pan). Next time I will probably marinate a little bit longer, and try a different cooking method (grill, bake or broil). I was a bit worried about the huge amount of oregano (and I used dried oregano), but while marinating and cooking, it almost dissolved and dispersed it's flavor. Yum!
