"I followed the recipe exactly. I really did not care for this marinade. It tasted oily and did not have much flavor. All I could taste was the lemon. Thumbs down here."
"The flavor of this steak was delicious and very balanced! No ingredient over-powered the other, and even with seemingly unrelated ingredients from different cuisines, like soy sauce (Asian), hot sauce (South Western) and turmeric (Indian), they all blended together very harmoniously. I thought of it as a melting pot marinade and wanted to try it just because of the interesting combination. I marinated the steak for about 12 hours and then grilled it for 8 minutes at 375? on the George Foreman indoor grill. I served it with with recipe #179450 and recipe #173262 and my DH discovered that the 3 recipes together make a delicious sandwich. Thanks for sharing this one, Happy Hippie! Made and enjoyed for the February 2012 African Recipe Tag game. :)"
"This was very good. Can't wait to try it on the grill! Thanks for sharing!"
"Made this for dinner tonight and the whole family loved it. I marinated overnight and put it on my george foreman grilled and it was perfect. I can't wait to make when our son comes home from school. Thanks Lori this was awesome.. :) Made for what kids eat tag game on kk's. :)"
"I really like flank steak and this was a great way to cook it. I made the marinade, added the fresh, scored flank steak and put it in the freezer to have at a later time. It turned out great and the 4 minutes a side was great for a very rare steak in the thickest part - just how I like it! We had this with recipe #277095 and carrots. Made for Kittencal's Grilling Game. Thanks Lauralie41! :)"
"Great marinade! I was going to grill on bbq, but it rained, so I broiled the flank steak. Turned out great. I have fresh oregano in the garden, and the flavor of that really came through. I am going to use this marinade on a chicken, too!"
"Excellent!! Thanks for sharing."
"This was delicious. It made the fat on the meat taste so good I wished I hadn't used such a lean cut. I think you could use this to marinate anything you wanted to grill or broil. I think I will!"
"We all liked this very much. I did feel that it was a bit too oily but that can easily be cut down next time."
"Very tasty marinade. It is such a interesting flavor; a bit of heat, but not too hot, a bit of sweet (I thought), but not too sweet. I marinated for about 60 minutes, and cooked it on the stove top (about 15-20 min in a pan). Next time I will probably marinate a little bit longer, and try a different cooking method (grill, bake or broil). I was a bit worried about the huge amount of oregano (and I used dried oregano), but while marinating and cooking, it almost dissolved and dispersed it's flavor. Yum!"
"Nice marinade. If you marinade the steak longer, the yellow from the turmeric turns more to orange. Unique flavours & a nice change up from the other marinades. Thanks for sharing."
"We really enjoyed this! The blend of flavors is just different enough to be distinctive and a change of pace without being uncomfortably foreign. We had to substitute basil for marjoram, and used the broiler instead of the grill, but otherwise followed the recipe. Made for PRMR, Jan. 08."
"What a tasty way to cook steak. The marinade gave this steak such a stellar taste. I added a bit more hot sauce to the marinade to kick ut up a bit. And also since it is quite chilly here I broiled the steaks instead of grilling. Very good recipe I plan on using much more!"
"I'm sorry. It wasn't our favorite by any stretch. There is something missing that would turn this from okay to amazing. The turmeric made it a strange orange color that was unappealing. The marinade smelled like carne asada and maybe that is what I was expecting. I also cooked it on a grill pan and it smelled delightful while grilling but just didn't meet expectations when served. I will keep watching because I think with a small tweak it could be really good. I am just not sure what that tweak is."
"Wonderful marinade. We grilled this on a stovetop grill pan since it was so cold outside. This is a great way to cook flank steak. Thanks Lauralie."
"This recipe is an example of why I save recipes for future use. I really think this is one of the better recipes that I have tried and I'm an accomplished outdoor cook. Excellent."
"Wonderful recipe! I used sirloin tips and marinaded overnight. I served with grilled corn on the cob, a salad, and baked potatoes. A perfect summer dinner. Thank you for sharing this recipe! "
"I went with Annacia and did pork steaks. These were the bomb. I let it marinate most of the day and broiled it. I used stock instead of sherry, that was all I had. I love the change of pace for the pork and will definately make it again. Thanks for the awesome recipe. Jan "
"I didn't have flank steak but I have to tell you that this made some wickedly good pork steaks! Also, I did them under the broiler and they turned out great. I put in 1 tsp of Tabasco and that was quite enough for our house. I served the pork with onion cous cous and peeled and sliced oranges sprinkled lightly with cinnamon and a sparkling apple juice to drink. So yummy!!"
"I was going to grill this, but it was just too cold outside so I roasted it in a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes. The result was very tasty and tender. Next time I will marinate the steak longer as I only marinated it for about 90 minutes. Thanks for sharing. "
