I don't really like Flank as a cut, but used it anyway. I did love the marinade, though. I think this would be really good if on a filet or other cut such as hangar steak which isn't as tough...definitely marinade overnight, one hour didn't seem to be enough. Thanks!

Wonderful steak that was perfect with tortillas and fruit salad! I marinated the steak for about four hours - very tender with just the perfect amount of heat for us. We will be having this often this summer! Thanks for sharing!
