Asian Grilled Flank Steak

Asian Grilled Flank Steak

This is my go-to flank steak recipe.  Sometimes I will  double the marinade and heat it up while the steak is cooking and then serve both the steak and marinade (and some broccoli) over rice.

As I mentioned in my other flank steak post you definitely want this steak to marinate for a while and it works really well when you score it before grilling.

Flank steak is one of the more lean cuts of beef and this particular recipe tastes great in a salad, too.  It is really versatile.

We almost always grill this, but if it is a rainy day, we might throw this on top of our cast iron stove top griddle with equal success.

If you have never had flank steak before give this recipe a try.  Enjoy!

  • ½ cup soy sauce

  • 1 flank steak (1.5 - 2 pounds)
  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a resealable plastic bag. Add flank steak and ensure that the marinade is evenly distributed throughout the bag. Close and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.

  3. Heat grill to a medium high heat and grill for about 6 minutes on each side.
