This is really good! It is from Connie Guttersen, author of the Sonoma Diet. Serve it by itself or with mango chutney. Cook time is marinading time.

Great recipe! You could definitely marinate longer, but you don't need too. We served with a salsa (pico de gallo or pebre), a really nice combo. Definitely important to let the steak sit for 5 minutes or so after coming off of the grill so that the juices settle. Thanks Susie for a great recipe!

Loved the flavor of this meat. I chose to marnate the flank steak overnight, and the result was very tender and juicy steak. Served with sweet potatoe latkes #82423, which were a very nice compliment. Thank you Susie for sharing the recipe.
