Ready In:




  • Combine all ingredients, except steak, in a jumbo ziplock bag that has been placed in a glass bowl for support. After scoring the flank steak place it in the bag. Seal the bag and refrigerate at least 20 minutes or up to overnight.
  • Heat the grill or a grill pan on the stove. Remove the flank steak from the bag and pat dry with paper towels. Grill 4 to 5 minutes per side or until done to taste. Let rest 5 to 10 minutes before carving before serving.

  1. 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.
  2. 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. :)
  3. This was very good. Can't wait to try it on the grill! Thanks for sharing!
  4. 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. :)
  5. 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! :)


  1. 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.
