    I made this in the broiler, and now I'm looking forward to doing it on the grill too! This is an excellent marinade, the ginger gives a nice taste boost. Our steak was done rare in the time stated for cooking, perfect! Very easy to make, would be a great recipe to use for a summer gathering of friends. Thanks Ellie, I will make this one a lot!!

    We loved this - so tender and delicious. I used fresh onions that I chopped extra fine and added 1 teaspoon of smokey paprika (I like that smokey taste). I made this on the inside -Thanks for posting! I can't wait for our summer to start in 2 months and I can pull out the BBQ.

    Excellent - the steak had a great flavor and was very tender! The only change I made to the recipe was the addition of fresh ground pepper to the steak as I grilled it. Served with fresh corn on the cob and a pasta salad.

    I have to agree with everyone elses rating. The flavor was fantastic. This was the first time we have ever had flank steak and with the marinade this was wonderful. Thanks, Ellie!

    wonderful marinade...I let mine marinate for 2 days (was not really planned), but when we did get around to grilling it, it was wonderful....putting this recipe in my favorites for safe keeping...


<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
