Grilled Flank Steak

This is quickly becoming a favorite at our house.
My husband typically drowns all of his steaks in A-1 but when I make these with the marinade below he says they are good all alone.
Tasty and tender when marinated all day and then grilled fast.

Grilled Flank Steak

1 flank steak
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp. water
1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic 
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. oil
1/2 tsp. pepper

Place meat in a Zip-loc bag.
Add all other ingredients to bag and zip it shut.
Shake it around a bit so that everything mingles together.
Place in refrigerator and let it marinate all day.
Heat grill up nice and hot.
Place steak on grill and sear each side, toss the leftover marninade.
After both sides are seared you can turn the heat down to medium low and let cook till desired doneness.
I prefer mine "non-mooing" so I cook it well done. 
Probably 15 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness.
You be the judge on the time, depending on your own personal preference.
Cut on an angle into thin slices.

*Flank steak can be rather pricey at $6.00 a pound so I usually watch for sales and then stock up on it. It freezes well, can be thawed quickly and then placed in the marinade*

I have never cooked flank steak. This marinade sounds really good though. I'm going to try it on our regular steaks.

The marinade sounds so good. I don't care how I cook a steak or if we go out for a steak, my hubby drowns his in steak sauce and ketchup. I keep telling the man that he's ruining a perfectly good steak!
