Tender Flank Steak

Rated as 4.69 out of 5 Stars

"'This mildly marinated flank steak is my son's favorite,' reports Gayle Bucknam of Greenbank, Washington. 'I usually slice it thinly and serve it with twice-baked potatoes and a green salad to round out the meal. Leftovers are great for French dip sandwiches.'"

The flavor was excellent. I didn't have exactly 1/4 c. of regular soy sauce so I used regular and Lite and added a little more water to make a 1/4. I also used "already prepared" garlic in a ja...
