As the heat rises, I don't know about you but the oven mitt comes off and we fire up the grill! I like to spend more time outside with my garden instead of being cooped up in the kitchen. I've never been a beefaholic, so a well marinated thinly sliced piece of meat is a great alternative to a hunk of steak. And, if you're lucky enough to have leftovers, it makes for a great sandwich the next day.
I can't justify buying a marinade already bottled from the store when it's just as easy to mix up your own. You can purchase a decent sized flank steak for less than $10.00, which would be a quarter of what you might spend for 4 steaks.
Grilled Flank Steak
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and place the meat into a gallon plastic bag. Pour the marinade into the bag and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Lay it out flat in the frig so the meat sucks up all the juice!
3/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp honey
1/4 cup seasoned (or plain) rice wine vinegar
2 cloves of garlic, minced
for added flavor you can add some herbs like chopped parsley, cilantro or rosemary (optional)
Next, grill it until done and let it rest for about 10 minutes before slicing as thin as you can. Delicious!
