1 (2 1/2-pound) steak


  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • ½ cup soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 (2.5 pound) flank steak


  1. Combine oil, soy sauce, water, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, and pepper in a small bowl. Mix until combined.

  2. Cut shallow slashes in a crosshatch pattern on both sides of the steak, being careful not to cut all the way through.

  3. Place steak in a low, flat dish and pour marinade on top, covering meat completely. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours, or overnight, turning steak over once.

  4. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Remove steak from the marinade and place on a baking pan. Reserve marinade.

  5. Broil, brushing occasionally with marinade, until browned and heated through, about 5 minutes per side. Remove steak to a platter and cover loosely with foil. Let rest for at least 5 minutes. Slice into 1- to 2-inch strips across the grain.


Cook steak on the grill if preferred. Grill directly on the grate, brushing occasionally with the marinade.
