I love marinades, well, most marinades. And the meat that really requires a great marinade is flank steak. Just throwing together some vinegar and oil for a marinade is not going to cut it. In fact, it sounds more like a salad dressing rather than a marinade.
One of our local grocery stores grills meat in the parking lot on weekends during the summer. As you drive up to get the shopping done, you walk through all these wonderful smells of barbecuing. And then you walk into the store, grab some meat and go home to grill it yourself. I’ve done this too many times to count. And forgotten the milk I went to the store to buy originally.
This marinade is really good and hot. What saves the day, however is that before you throw it onto the grill, you wipe off the marinade. When you bite into the meat, you still have the taste of some flavorful heat but it is tempered down. Try it once, your flank steaks will love you.
See? Everyone looks happy here!
See? This is pretty simple and it packs a wallop of taste for your meat. Try it this upcoming weekend when I know you will all be out there grilling meat for Father’s Day!
