The marinade in this Grilled Asian-style Soy Marinated Flank Steak takes an uninteresting piece of steak and turns it into a mouthwatering dish!
1/2cup120 ml reduced sodium soy sauce or tamari (for gluten-free option)
1/4cup60 ml honey
2tablespoons30 ml vegetable oil, plus more for greasing
2tsp10 g minced ginger
1/4tspred chili pepper flakes
2tbsp6 g thinly sliced green onion, plus more for garnish
2lb907 g flank steak
In a medium-size bowl, combine the soy sauce, honey, vegetable oil, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, black pepper, red chili pepper and green onions.
Remove 1/4 cup (60 ml) of the marinade and combine with the rice vinegar in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate.
Place the remaining marinade and steak in a 1-gallon (3.6-L) resealable bag. Remove as much air as possible and seal the bag.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour by laying the steak flat, and flipping the bag after 30 minutes. The steak can be marinated in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours.
Remove the steak from the marinade, drain any excess liquid and transfer to a pan. Discard the marinating bag.
Set the grill to high. Add a small amount of oil on a folded piece of paper towel, carefully greasing the grill with the oil.
Allow the grill to preheat for 15 minutes, and once the grill is very hot, add the steak.
Cover and cook the steak until well browned, about 4 to 5 minutes, then flip and cook until desired doneness, about 3 to 4 minutes. For medium rare, cook the steak until the internal temperature reaches between 120 and 125°F (49 and 52°C). For medium, cook between 130 and 135°F (54 and 57°C).
Transfer the steak to a cutting board and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
Slice the steak against the grain into 1/4-inch (6-mm) thick slices. Pour the reserved marinade on top and serve hot.
