You HAVE to let this steak sit overnight. Don't bother making it if you can't put in the time, because the payoff is worth it. This staple in our household is a favorite of all who try it! You can BBQ in summer or broil in the winter for a perfect, filling meal. I like corn on the cob and some sort of rice to complement this mouth watering steak.

A divine recipe! I didn't have time to marinate it for 24 hours but did soak the meat for a good 14 hours and was it flavorful and tender! My flank steak was extrememly thin so I only grilled it for 3 minutes per side on medium. I served a Chimmichuri sauce on top of the steaks and that really cut the sweetness of the marinade - complimented it beautifully. To make the Chimmichurri Sauce, I put 1/2 c fresh parsley, 3 T olive oil, 2 T red wine vinegar, 3 cloves of crushed garlic and 1/2 t salt in a mini food processor. Pureed it until everything was blended and then poured a thick strip of sauce down the center of the slices of steak on everyone's plate. All I can say is that it was absolutely delicious and we are going to be making this steak all the time in the future! Read More

This was too sweet... personally I expect and prefer a meat to be either spicy or salty and this was neither. Major dissapointment. Read More

Absolutely delicious. Super fast and easy. Marinade takes about 5 minutes to prepare. I followed the recipe exactly, except I omitted the optional chilli, and tripled the garlic (we are garlic lovers). I marinated for abuot 24 hours, and the meat was soooooooo flavorful. I over-grilled it accidentally, so it wasn't as tender as I like, but I think if you make it rare or medium it will be just right. Two days' worth of dinner gone in one sitting. I kept the marinade, and plan to use on some leftover cooked chicken. Read More

Not bad wasn't as impressed as some others though tasty it was nothing to rave about. Could be marinated longer and definately do not overcook it is better on the rare side when grilled. Read More

This was a very flavorful marinade that reminds me a lot of beef teriyaki. I broiled it in the oven and it turned out very tender and tasty. Read More

Not really worth the great reviews. The flavoring it gave to my steak was rather bland and I marinated for over 24 hours. I will not be making this again. Read More

GREAT STEAK! No A1 or Heinz steak sauce needed for this tender juicy and flavorful meat! I did add just a PINCH of brown sugar. An all-around wonderful recipe that will be made time and time again. Thanks Willyboyz! Read More
