This is delicious! It uses Meyer lemons, which I love. If you cannot get Meyer lemons you can substitute 1-1/4 cup fresh lemon juice and 1/4 cup fresh orange juice. I made sandwiches with the leftovers that my kids really enjoyed. I put a little garlic butter on a roll and broiled it a little. Then put thinly sliced pieces of steak on the roll, top with swiss cheese and broiled until melted. From the cookbook Food To Live By.
- 3 lbs flank steaks
- 1 1⁄2 cups fresh meyer lemon juice
- 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
- 6 medium sized shallots, coarsely chopped
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- Pierce both sides of the flank steak all over with a fork; place meat in a 1-gallon resealable plastic bag.
- Pour the lemon juice in a small bowl and whisk in the soy sauce. Add shallots; whisk in the sesame oil. Pour about 2/3 cup of the marinade inot a microwave-safe container and refrigerate until needed.
- Pour remaining marinade into the bag with the flank steak and seal, pressing out any excess air. Refrigerate the steak overnight; turning once or twice to distribute the marinade evenly.
- Remove the steak from the marinade and discard the unused marinade.
- Grill or broil the steak until cooked to taste; about 3 to 4 minutes per side for rare.
- Let the steak rest for 5 minutes.
- Warm the reserved marinade in the microwave and place in a serving bowl.
- Cut steak against the grain into very thin slices.
- Serve with warmed marinade.
This made a nicely flavored flank steak. Based on the other review, I did toss in a couple of garlic cloves and I didn't have the Meyer lemons so used the lemon/orange juice combination. This was grilled for 4 minutes on each side and was cooked rare. The meat was tender. This was served with recipe #9716 and a tomato salad. Made for the Aussie Swap.
Couldn't find Meyer lemons, so used fresh lemon and OJ. We thought it was bland. Made for Tag game.
