When you’ve got a bunch of dudes to feed that are all big fans of meat, you’re always looking for fun and delicious ways to keep their tummies full and taste buds happy.
This Asian Flank Steak does all of the above.
I love how easy it is to whip together a homemade marinade. And I love how flank steak takes in and holds the marinade flavor. And I love that when you freeze the meat in the marinade, it marinates as it thaws before cooking. And that’s what makes this a winner – the extra long marinade time makes for a delicious piece of steak!
Just grill to your liking out on the grill, or on the stovetop griddle.
Sprinkle with a few toasted sesame seeds before serving and AAAAHHHHH……
