I made this for my family when I was a Navy wife with three children with healthy appetites. This recipe will make the most inexpensive cuts very tender.

Great recipe. However, if you plan on marinading for a long time make sure to use a very low sodium soy sauce or else the steaks will be far to salty. Otherwise great. Read More

My husband said "Not so good" but I think I can add a few things to give it some kick. One thing is for certain - the meat WAS tender! Read More

I used minced garlic, added to the marinade;scored the steak on both sides & left the steak & marinade in a ziplock bag for about 20 hours, turning every few hours. I broiled this about 6" from the heat for about 10 minutes per side, and it came out medium rare in the middle.I sliced the whole thing against the grain in thin slices, and poured the BOILED marinade (after it cooled) over the leftovers. I have been enjoying this for days-reheats very well in the microwave for a minute for several slices-they don't get tough! Next time, I might use a low-sodium soy sauce! This is a keeper!!!

Very good. I used olive oil instead of veg. oil low sodium soy sauce and minced garlic vs. garlic powder. I scored the steak slightly and poured everything into a ziploc bag. I let it marinate for about 6 hours. Read More

This marinade adds a ton of flavor to flank steak it also made the meat very tender. In the past I have always typically marinaded my flank steak in teriyaki sauce however this recipe is certain to make me change my ways.. Read More

This was a really good combo of flavors. Soy and lemon go good together. Like another reviewer I too added a tablespoon of brown sugar and a dash of onion powder and ginger. I started marinating in the morning and grilled later that evening..(about 6-7 hours) and the flavor was fantastic. A little on the salty side but we still enjoyed our steaks very much. Thanks Bobbie. Read More

I make basically the same recipe and it is flexible. I generally add some frozen orange juice fresh ginger often rum or tequila honey and always some red pepper flakes. No measuring required. I just add a dash or this or a gurgle of that into the bag and give it a shake. If I run into flank steak on sale and I'm going to freeze it I just freeze it in the marinate. Once it defrost I have a instant meal. This is awesome sliced very thin with a fresh orange salsa. Read More

Being that the weather is 60 degrees outside today I was very excited to grill and was even more excited to make this recipe. I am so glad the recipe exceeded my expectations! Other than adding a TBLS of brown sugar to the marinade I didn't change a thing. We started these by 10am and grilled around 6pm. Everyone was very pleased and the steaks were both flavorful and tender. My roommate made me promise not to lose this recipe...which I won't! Thanks Bobbie! Read More

Excellent! I only marinated for about 3 hours and it was still really good. I used real chopped garlic rubbed it into the steak and about 1/4 of a cup of brown sugar. Everyone loved it. Read More
