Instructions For Our Flank Steak Marinade Recipe:

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, honey (or brown sugar), black pepper, red pepper flakes, oregano, thyme, and paprika.
  1. Place the flank steak in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish.
  1. Pour the marinade over the steak, making sure it's evenly coated. If using a plastic bag, press out any excess air and seal it tightly. If using a dish, cover it with plastic wrap.
  1. Refrigerate the steak in the marinade for at least 2 to 4 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to infuse into the meat. If marinating in a plastic bag, you can also massage the marinade into the steak a few times during the marinating process.
  1. When you're ready to cook the flank steak, preheat your grill or stove-top grill pan to medium-high heat.
  1. Remove the steak from the marinade and discard the marinade.
  1. Grill the flank steak for about 4-6 minutes per side, depending on your desired level of doneness and the thickness of the steak. For medium-rare, the internal temperature should be around 130-135°F (55-57°C).
  1. Once cooked to your liking, remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it against the grain into thin strips.
  1. Serve and enjoy your deliciously marinated flank steak with your favorite sides!

Note: You can customize the marinade by adding or adjusting spices to suit your taste preferences. If you want a sweeter flavor, you can increase the honey or brown sugar; if you prefer more heat, add extra red pepper flakes.
