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 proved 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
