Kittencal's Marinated Grilled Flank Steak

READY IN: 24hrs 12mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Plan ahead the steak needs to be marinated for 24 hours --- THIS IS IMPORTANT allow the beef to sit out on the counter until almost room temperature this is a most critical step to relaxe the meat fibers to create the most tender steak, this might take about 3 hours so start this well in advance ---remember to carve the cooked steak at a 35-45 degree angle to insure tender meat :)

Very nice! I liked scoring the steak - it soaked up more of the delicious marinade. I cooked mine for just over 4 minutes a side and it was nice and rare. We enjoyed this with grilled cauliflower and pasta salad. Made for Kittencal's Grilling Game. Thanks Kittencal! :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 907.18 g flank steaks
  • McCormick's Montreal Brand steak seasoning (to taste, or freshly ground coarse black pepper)
  • salt (to taste, I use seasoned salt if using black pepper)

  • 158.51 ml vegetable oil
  • 78.07 ml soy sauce
  • 59.14 ml red wine vinegar
  • 44.37-59.16 ml honey (can use 3-4 tablespoons real maple syrup, DO NOT substitute brown sugar)
  • 44.37 ml Worcestershire sauce
  • 1.23 ml ground ginger
  • 29.58-44.37 ml coarsley chopped fresh garlic
  • 2 green onions, coarsley chopped


  1. In a bowl combine all marinade ingredients until well combined.
  2. Score the surface of the uncooked steak about 1/4-inch deep across the grain.
  3. Place the marinade into a large heavy resealable plastic bag then add in the beef.
  4. Seal bag and toss meat to coat with the marinade.
  5. Place the bag into a large bowl.
  6. Refrigerate for 24 hours (tossing the bag a couple of times during the refrigeration time).
  7. Remove beef from the marinade and allow all the marinade to drip off scraping off the chopped garlic pieces and green onions from the meat.
  8. Place on a large plate (I use a jelly-roll pan) and allow to sit out on the counter until almost room temperature, this might take about 3 or more hours.
  9. Preheat grill to high heat.
  10. Place on grill and season with steak seasoning or fresh ground black pepper and a little salt.
  11. Grill the meat about 5-6 minutes per side for rare doneness (turning ONLY one time, do not overcook the meat as it will cook a little more after removing from the grill).
  12. Remove to a plate/s and allow to sit for 10 minutes before slicing.
  13. Slice the meat across the grain.
