Homemade Marinated Flank Steak

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min.


5 servings

Janet Wright PORTAGE, PENNSYLVANIA Lemon and ginger enhance these melt-in-your-mouth steaks. The thinly sliced meat basks in the savory marinade overnight for extra flavor and tenderness.


  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium beef bouillon granules
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 beef flank steak (1-1/2 pounds)


  1. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, oil, garlic, bouillon and ginger. Pour 1/3 cup into a shallow dish; add flank steak and turn to coat. Cover; refrigerate overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Grill steak, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°), basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. To serve, thinly slice across the grain.
