Lemon/Soy Flank Steak
I officially love flank steak! This is another yummy marinade for you; it’s lemony (yum!) and has a hint of Asian flare (double yum!). Flanks steak used to be considered a cheap cut of meat but then all of a sudden people clued in to how great it is and now it’s expensive, so unfair!!!

½ Cup cider Vinegar
½ Cup Extra virgin olive oil
¼ Cup sodium-reduced soy sauce
Juice of one lemon
Zest of one lemon
2 tbsp brown sugar
3 Cloves garlic, crushed
1 inch fresh ginger, grated
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
453 g (1 pound) flank steak
In a large casserole dish or any dish large enough to hold the steak (you can even use a large Ziploc bag), whisk together the cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, soy sauce, lemon juice and zest, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, salt and pepper.
Submerge the steak completely and let it marinate for a minimum of 4 hours, up to 24 hours (in the fridge).
Rotate the steak in the marinade every few hours.
When you’re ready to grill the steak, remove the steak and shake the excess marinade off of it. Reserve the marinade itself though for later.
Follow my How to Grill the Best Steak EVER guide.
Take the reserved marinade and pour it in to a small saucepot and bring it to a rapid boil; mix well. Let the marinade boil for about a minute and then drop the heat to low until the steak is cooked; taste and adjust seasoning.
When the steak is cooked, slice the meat against the grain (opposite of the natural lines you’ll see in the fibre of the meat). This is key to tender Flank Steak.
Top the meat slices with the marinade/sauce.
Garnish with fresh chives if you want to be fancy!
- Like my other Marinated Flank Steak recipe, there is enough marinade for a larger steak but I’m trying to encourage portion control!
- If you don’t have fresh ginger on hand then substitute with a ½ tsp of dried or simply skip it.
