Flank Steak With Lemon Shallot Marinade

Flank Steak With Lemon Shallot Marinade created by PaulaG

This is delicious! It uses Meyer lemons, which I love. If you cannot get Meyer lemons you can substitute 1-1/4 cup fresh lemon juice and 1/4 cup fresh orange juice. I made sandwiches with the leftovers that my kids really enjoyed. I put a little garlic butter on a roll and broiled it a little. Then put thinly sliced pieces of steak on the roll, top with swiss cheese and broiled until melted. From the cookbook Food To Live By.

    This made a nicely flavored flank steak. Based on the other review, I did toss in a couple of garlic cloves and I didn't have the Meyer lemons so used the lemon/orange juice combination. This was grilled for 4 minutes on each side and was cooked rare. The meat was tender. This was served with recipe #9716 and a tomato salad. Made for the Aussie Swap.

    Couldn't find Meyer lemons, so used fresh lemon and OJ. We thought it was bland. Made for Tag game.
