"I found the original of this recipe on by Lee Custer. Very good and easy! Lee grills his steaks, but we have started smoking ours and they are great!"

  • Place flank steak in sealable plactic bag and add remaining ingredients. Note: Soy sauce will (naturally) make the marinade more salty.
  • Rub marinade into steak and marinate for 6 to 12 hours. Turn bag over at least four times during marination.
  • If grilling: Grill or broil flank steak over hot hardwood coals for about 8-10 minutes a side.
  • If smoking: Heat the smoker to 250 degrees F and smoke until tender. For 3 flank steaks (essentially double/triple the recipe), smoke for 1 1/2 hours.
  • When done, slice the flank steaks across the grain in thin strips.

  1. This was a very nice marinade that we all enjoyed. It was easy to put together and the flavor is great. We love to smoke and can't wait to try this on the smoker. Thanks for posting!
  2. 3rd time I have tried to review this recipe! <br/>It is great smoked as well as grilled!<br/>Thank you for offering an option to my original recipe.


<p>My name is Karen and I live West of Chicago (on the edge of no where!) with my DH, our two German Shepherds, and our two daughters. I love to golf, garden (except for the weeding!), am addicted to romance novels (and good science fiction), and I love to bake--usually cakes from scratch when I have the time! Since getting married, I have been cooking a lot more and am having a lot of fun trying new recipes! And&nbsp;now that I have two little ones, the&nbsp;slow cooker is my friend!&nbsp; The girls take a lot of time, but they are worth it!<br /><br />The dogs are my babies too--though they are about as big as I am! &nbsp;It has been a bit of a challenge at times, as&nbsp;they both have severe hip dysplasia, but they are great dogs and I have learned so much about arthritis! I have also learned a lot about cancer, as our female was diagnosed with bone cancer.&nbsp; She is now on three, but doing great post-chemo.&nbsp; They are both&nbsp;great with the kids and love to ***** little hands and feet! and noses! and ears! and...! <br /><br />I participated in the 2006 Fall PAC--and what a great game/program/thing! So much fun! <br /><br /><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting" /> <br /><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting" /></p>
