Marinated Flank Steak Recipe

Flank Steak

The best flank steak I ever had was prepared by a co-worker some years ago and featured a Korean-style marinade for which he refused to divulge the full list of ingredients. I've never fully tried to replicate it for fear of complete failure, but I still love marinated flank steak. This one is done in an Asian style soy-based marinade, seared over direct heat, then finished off the heat.


Combine all ingredients (except the steak) in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Place your flank steak in a large gallon sized ziploc bag then pour marinade into the bag. Get as much of the air out of the bag as you can, then seal and rotate a few times to get the marinade all over the meat. Refrigerate for up to two hours.

Remove meat from marinade about 1/2 hour before grilling. Wipe off excess marinade ingredients and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Grill over direct-high until a nice crust forms (about 3-4 minutes per side). Move off to the side of the grill and continue cooking, covered, about 5-7 minutes longer. Remove from grill and let stand for 10 minutes before cutting into it. Slice thinly, against the grain.

Note: As grilling season comes to an end, the steak can be prepared on a cast iron stove top griddle.

Oh man that thing is beautiful. And ginger on a steak, I wouldn't have thought of that. Got to get me some ginger.


for your flank steak recipe, do you have any suggestions to substitue rice wine vinegar?

I just made this dish and I served it grilled (outdoors), on a bed of rice noodles. It was very good! Five stars, and two thumbs up!

Drew Kime. If you liked the ginger, you should try lemon grass (4-6 stalks, outer sheaths removed, bottom 4" minced). Oh, yea! It's easy to grow your own, it is a beautiful plant and will even grow in a pot.

ashu. The closest match would prolly be a white wine vinegar. For marinades, any acid (or alcohol) will work, and these are light, but will also give the meat additional flavors so be careful...

White wine vinegar
dry white wine
plain white vinegar
beer or ale
whiskey or tequila

Thanks, Micro! I need to find a place that sells Lemongrass and give it a try.

The picture itself says that it is really tasty and delicious. It would be better if we really know all the ingredients. Plus, the process of doing this.

I am sure that this taste so good if this is prepared through the good equipments. It affects also to the taste of the foods.

A mouth watering slice of steak. I would love some gravy with it.

I tried this recipe earlier, the steak turned out INCREDIBLE! Really good flank steak recipe. I highly recommend it to all :)
