Very good marinade for a tasy cut of beef. For those sayin the flat iron is too tough you must be cutting it incorrectly. Try cutting in 1/4" strips ACROSS the grain. This makes a world of difference. Use fresh roasted and smashed garlic instead of garlic powder. Read More

Not bad but not great. Before cooking the marinade seemed good but it was a little too much overall. Read More

Thanks Recipe Exchange ladies for this recipe! I had bought a flat iron steak at the store and had no idea what I was going to do with it. I posted a request on the recipe exchange and this recipe was suggested. It turned out great. I loved it. Read More

Yes, this marinade is much sweeter than most. But I liked it. Instead of grilling the steak, I cut the marinated (overnight) meat in strips and pan fried in the marinade. Served with rice and a simple salad of baby greens and grape tomatoes for a very delicious meal. (There were a few steak strips left over from the first meal and I sauteed red bell pepper and onions, added some oregano, and the meat for very tasty fajitas.) Read More

It was the first time I tried this recipe. It was delicious however I thought there was too much of a honey taste so I'll reduce it a bit the next time. Read More

I love the marinade. I went exactly by the recipe. I let it marinate for three days in the baggie in a refrigerator. What I don't enjoy so much is this particular cut of meat. I think it was grilled properly (it was pink in the middle) but it's just a tough cut of meat. I will absolutely use the marinade again on a different cut of steak. Read More

Excellent Marinade! I've made this a few times exactly as the recipe states and it's fabulous my family loves it! I typically mix the marinade and get the steaks soaking first thing in the morning then by the time I get home from work they've been soaking for hours and the flavor is just perfect. I imagine if they soaked over night they'd be even better but I never remember to do it the night before. Read More

Delicious! I marinate for a good 24 hours. I think th ehoney and balsamic giv eit great flavor. I've even used this for a giant chuck steak and threw everything along with some potatoes carrots onion and stock into a crock pot and made a kind of pot roast out of it. Read More

I modified this a little...to make it easier and adapt to our tastes: delicious!! Mixed the liquid ingredients as instructed but instead of adding the dried herbs I just coated my steak with a healthy dose of Montreal Steak seasoning. Poured the marinade on sealed the ziplock bag and refrigerated about 10 hours before cooking on the grill. Take the steak out of the marinade and let the steak come to room temp if you can before grilling. Delicious! So tender and juicy! Everyone enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing! Read More
