A melt in your mouth Flank steak that is grilled on the barbie and perfect for any cookout! An overnight marinade of soy sauce, red wine vinegar and garlic puts the flavor over the top for this cut of meat.
Oh my goodness this is a fabulous marinade recipe for Flank steak or Flat Iron steak. Guys, I’m talking HUGE flavor here! And, it’s so super easy to make this marinade! I got home really late last night from the gym…around 10:00pm. Because I do meal planning and since I do stick to it each week, I already knew what I was having for dinner the next night. Ya’ll, I’ve made this recipe so many times before, I knew I needed to get my steak in this scrumptious marinade the night before so it would have plenty of time to marinate.
I threw my gym stuff down and started pulling the ingredients to make my marinade. I started whipping up my special marinade in a glass bowl. Then, I put the steak and marinade in a gallon size ziplock baggie and tossed it in the fridge so it could do it’s marination magic overnight.
Speaking from experience, I recommend you marinate the steak for at least 12 hours before grilling. And by the way…let’s talk Flank steak versus Flat Iron steak for a minute so you can understand the difference. Flat Iron steak is cut from the shoulder and has nice marbling. It’s perfect for grilling. Flank steak is cut from the abdominal area and is a more tough cut of meat. Personally, I like Flat Iron steak more than Flank steak, but you can use whatever cut of meat you want. I find that Flat Iron steak is more tender and tends to melt in my mouth more than Flank steak, but that may just be preference.
When I got home from work today, I pulled my marinated steak out of the baggie that was in fridge. The aroma was incredible…I could not wait to grill my steak! I let the steak rest for 10 minutes on a plate before I popped it on the grill. Let’s elaborate on this marinade, shall we? It’s full of flavor, but what really makes this marinade pop is the lemon juice, red wine vinegar, fresh minced garlic and Dijon Mustard. I’m telling you those four ingredients are KEY and pair so perfectly with the oil, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. After the resting period was over, I popped my steak on the grill and it was ready in 20 minutes. So easy and if you are a “plan ahead” kind of person, you’ll appreciate this recipe.
This marinade is gluten free and if you are gluten free, make sure you read the labels of your soy sauce, Worcestershire Sauce and Dijon Mustard. You would be amazed at how many packaged sauces add in gluten as a filler…it’s ridiculous. Here’s some tips for you on gluten free brands:
- Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce is a safe gluten free product. You can read their disclosure here:
- Emeril’s Dijon Mustard is gluten free and is disclosed here.
Still though, if in question do your research. One of my readers advised that Lea & Perrins is gluten free in the US, but necessarily in other countries. Malt vinegar is used in the recipe outside the US. When in doubt…do more research!
Enjoy this recipe guys! You are going to LOVE it! Happy Eats!
