Grilled Marinated Flank Steak

by Michael Ruhlman

Chef's Notes: Flank steak, a flavorful yet affordable cut of beef, gets a salty-sweet boost from Michael Ruhlman's wonderful marinade. It also gives the meat a nice charred flavor, with or without an outdoor grill: as the marinade caramelizes, it creates aromatic smoke that infuses the meat, right in the hot pan. (Note: Allow 8 hours to fully marinate the steak.)
