DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all the ingredients except steaks in a bowl and mix well. (Marinade can be kept refrigerated for 7 to 10 days.).
  • Pierce the steak all over on both sides with a sharp fork or skewer. Place it in a zipper-lock bag or shallow glass baking dish. Pour over the marinade and refrigerate overnight (cover if using a dish). Shake and turn the bag or turn the meat occasionally. Let it come to room temperature before cooking.
  • TO GRILL THE STEAK:
  • Pat the steak dry. Grill the steak over medium-hot coals in a covered or uncovered barbecue or directly over the flames of a gas grill. Flank steak is best cooked medium-rare and should never be cooked more than medium; the internal temperature should be 130 to 135 degrees F. This should take roughly 4 to 5 minutes per side on a standard grill.
  • Allow the steak to rest for 5 minutes, covered loosely with aluminum foil, before carving into 1/4-inch-thick diagonal slices across the grain.
