Flavorful Flank Steak

I got this Alton Brown marinade from the Food Network website. It was so quick and easy to make and the marinade was SO FLAVORFUL! I really, really loved the flavor this marinade gave to the flank steak. I marinated it for 24 hours and it was perfect. You just can’t beat quick, simple, and delicious recipes like this. I served this steak with my Southwestern Salad and Roasted Tomatoes with Cotija and Cilantro.

Original recipe by Alton Brown ~ Food Network
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp + 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 green onions, diced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • Flank Steak

Combine the first 8 ingredients together in a large zip lock bag and mix really well. Add the flank steak, seal, then refrigerate for 24 hours.

Remove the flank steak from the refrigerator 20 minutes prior to cooking. Heat the grill pan on medium high heat and coat with olive oil cooking spray. Cook the flank steak for 3-4 minutes per side or until it’s cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Let the meat rest for 5 minutes before slicing in thin slices against the grain. Enjoy.

    Could this recipe be put in the crock pot after it marinades?

      I have never tried flank steak in a crockpot. I am sure it would work just fine, but your steak would be cooked through (instead of medium rare like up above) and the beef could possibly be so tender it shreds. Let me know how it turns out.
