Best of Both Worlds, 2 in One Flank Steak Marinade

Peggy Sue Ross


I had two marinade recipies that we 'kinda' liked, but they both lacked a little something although we liked elements of both. So, I combined and tweaked until we had our now 'favorite' marinade. It is a bit spicy and tangy and full of flavor! This is the one my husband asks for over and over.

We like it best on flank steak but you could use it on any beef cut or even pork.

How to Make Best of Both Worlds, 2 in One Flank Steak Marinade


  1. Score flank steaks by making shallow diagonal cuts on one side at 1-inch intervals in a diamond pattern. Repeat on other side. This is optional, but it makes a beautiful presentation and helps the marinade flavor the meat more deeply.
  2. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place meat in plastic bag set in shallow dish.
  3. Combine all remaining ingredients for marinade into plastic bag with meat. Seal bag and store in refrigerator 4 to 24 hours, turning occasionally.
  4. Drain meat, discarding marinade. Grill meat on grill over medium heat (or broil on medium-high)until desired doneness, turning once (about 12-14 minutes for medium). Allow steaks to cool for 3-5 minutes after removing from grill before slicing.
  5. Slice flank steaks thinly across grain. An electric knife helps to slice very thinly if available. Serve with a garish of fresh parsley or cilantro and sliced fresh pineapple if desired.
