Grilled Flank Steak with Simple but Tasty Marinade

This recipe comes from The South Beach Diet cookbook believe it or not and is one of my favorite marinades for Flank Steak. I know there are a thousand recipes for Flank Steak out there, but this one is so foolproof, I rarely deviate. It’s also super easy.


1 flank steak (1 1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup tomato juice
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 small onion, finely chopped (1/4 cup)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt

Combine all ingredients and pour in zip lock bag with Flank Steak.Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, turning once.

This recipe originally says to broil 3” from the heat for 5 minutes. Turn, brush with marinade, and broil for 3 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the center registers 145 degrees (for medium rare.)

We prefer to grill it on the charcoal grill using real hard wood charcoal.The smoky flavor added by the charcoal just can’t be beat.

Cut diagonally across the grain in to thin slices. I’ll be serving this tonight with Cuban Black Beans and Rice and Grilled Asparagus. I’ll let you know how the beans and rice work out. It’s a new recipe. If it’s a keeper, you know you’ll hear about it.
