Why I Love This Recipe

My grandfather got this recipe while watching Julia Childs on TV in the 1970s. It was what I chose for my birthday dinner every year growing up. As an adult I have modified the original recipe slightly. This version is with a flank steak, but I have used the marinade on chicken and fish. We serve it over rice drizzled with extra marinade. YUM!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 flank steak
1/2cup soy sauce
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
juice of 2 lemons (sometimes I add more because my kids love the taste of lemons)
just under 1/4cup of Worcestershire Sauce
2 cloves chopped garlic
1/2 bunch of green onions/scallions, chopped
cracked pepper, to taste

*this is a pretty salty recipe so, use low sodium ingredients if you prefer

whisk all ingredients, (except steak) together

score flank steak, diagonal against the grain

pour marinade over steak and let sit for 2 hours minimum...the longer it sits, the better it tastes

bbq to desired wellness. Can also be cooked in an inside broiler. Slice thinkly when done.

to serve with marinade over the top, while meat is cooking, pour marinade in a pot and bring to a rolling boil. Drizzle over steak when ready to serve.
