Soy Ginger Flank Steak With Garlic

Total Time

This recipe is delicious and easy. I make this quite often. I got it out of a local TV station cookbook called "KCTS Cooks" (on the grill).Serve with asparagus, baby red potatoes, corn on the cob, or any other summer vegetable. Cooking time does not include marinating.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lay flank steak flat and, with a sharp knife, score deep cuts diagonally at one-inch intervals across the entire steak.
  2. Repeat at a 90-degree angle to create one-inch squares across the surface of the steak.
  3. Repeat on other side of meat.
  4. Combine soy sauce and honey in a small glass bowl.
  5. Whisk until blended.
  6. Stir in garlic and ginger.
  7. Place steak in 13X9-inch pan.
  8. Pour marinade over meat, and turn to fully coat.
  9. Cover pan with lid or foil and store in refrigerator overnight.
  10. Turn steak at least once while marinating.
  11. Grill 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until desired temperature is reached.
  12. Do not overcook.
  13. Steak should be pink in the middle.
  14. The ends will be on the well done side for those who prefer it.
  15. Slice meat thinly at an angle.
  16. Note: You can make an extra batch of sauce to save and serve warm at the table for pouring on top of the meat.

Wow this is an awesome marinade. I love that the honey caramelizes on the outside. I had to substitute ground ginger but I bet it would be even better with fresh. Thanks for sharing.

Wow. What an amazing recipe. I highly recommend letting the meat marinate at least the 24 hours in the recipe, but longer if you can. I ended up buying a steak that was bigger than I needed, and decided rather than cooking it all at once I would use just half and then cook the rest in a day or two. The first half got done in the oven because the gas grill ran out of gas. It was ok, but I absolutely LOVED the steak I made after 3 days of marinating on the grill. It was so tender it almost tasted like it had butter in it. I'm definitely making this again.

This was super delicious. I really liked the flavor of the marinade. It was zesty yet mildly sweet and kept the beef quite moist. I was getting short on time and marinated it for about half the time specified, and it still tasted positively delicious. I'm glad I made this. Thanks, TeresaS.
