Excellent! I rarely use the phrase "to die for" this marinade fits the description. While the Mustard Sauce delicious, it was soon abandoned. No one wanted to mess with the superb taste of the marinaded steak. I made the recipe as directed and marinated the steak for 6 hours. I served the steak with your Tomatoes Provencale and chia's New Potato Salad. Thanks Dorothy, this recipe is a treasure!
This was very good. The sauce made this steak. You don't taste the marinade if you use the sauce. This was a keeper for my husband. I will use this sauce on other dishes.
I am always looking for a different marinade for flank steak. We used this one and really, it was just ok. It does have possibilities, though. I think next time I'll load it up with garlic, and add some sliced onions, and rosemary and lots of freshly cracked peppercorns.
