Flank Steak Marinade

I dabble with the idea of becoming a vegetarian, and then we have this, and I am so torn.  We love our flank steak and this marinade is so delicious.   I think this is our favorite BBQ meat dish.  It's a wonderful way to start a camping trip too.  

Before we bought our trailer, we did a lot of tent camping.  It's always so much work that first day to set up camp that I dread making dinner.  The flank steak makes my day so much easier because I get it started in the morning, double bag it, pop it into the cooler and once camp is ready to go...I turn the heat up and grill!  Very easy!

I usually buy our flank steak at Sam's or Costco.  I find the price to be much better.  Almost like your getting two for one.  My family of 5 will eat 2 flanks.  I try to fill them up with other side dishes, but they want their MEAT!  We never have left overs.  ENJOY

I am going to provide two recipes: the original and a Gluten/MSG free version.

Recipe: Flank Steak Marinade (THE ORIGINAL)

1.5 pounds of Flank Steak
1 can of Beef Broth
2 bunches of Green Onion
2 cloves of Garlic, minced
1/2 cup packed Brown Sugar
1/3 cup of Soy Sauce

You want to cut your meet across the grain into strips.  My strips are usually 1 inch thick and wide.

In a large storage bag or bowl, combine all ingredients.  Marinade in the refrigerator for at last 4 hours.

Remove bag, grab some tongs and a bowl.  Make sure you spray you grill with oil so that the meat will not stick.  Grill the flank steaks for 2-3 minutes on each side.  We don't like ours well done.  There should be some pink in the middle.

Gluten/ MSG Free Marinade Recipe

I used this recipe to marinade 3 pounds of Flank Steak.  Adjust according to how much meat you have.

1/4 Liquid Amino Acids (this is a soy based flavoring)
2 cups of water
3/4 cups of Tamari Soy Sauce (gluten-free)
1 T. onion powder or 2 bunches of green onion
2 tsp. garlic powder or 2 cloves of minced garlic
1 cup of brown sugar

  2. I remember when flank steak was a bargain cut. These days it's just as expensive as other steaks (at least here in No. California.)

    1. I also will use skirt steak. It depends on which one is cheaper at the time I buy it. Thanks for leaving a comment!
