Grilled Garlic Flank Steak

READY IN: 24hrs 2mins
Recipe by Oolala

From Cooking Light Cookbook, 1989. I love to try all kinds of flank steak marinades and preparations. This one has tequila and cilantro too. 24 hr. marination.

We made this according to the recipe (excluding cilantro) and the tequila taste was *very* strong. To the extent that we thought it might still be alcoholic. I enjoy my tequila a lot, but this was just too much in a meat dish. I would suggest either decreasing the tequila, decreasing the marination time, or using a cut of beef much thicker than a flank steak. It was much better cut up on a quesadilla than eaten straight, but I would still try to decrease the tequila.
