Quick Meal: Grilled Balsamic-Soy Flank Steak

Grilling is hands-down one of the best summer treats. Not that you can’t grill Year-round, but I think most people will agree it’s a summer staple above other seasons. This grilled flank steak recipe is my mother in-law’s. And it’s perfection. A simple, two-ingredient marinade, a hunk of lean, flavorful flank steak, and a grill. That’s all it takes! Oh, and a big ziploc bag. Here you go. 

* 1.5-2lb flank steak
* balsamic salad dressing
* low sodium soy sauce


This is an eyeball-it recipe. Place the steak in a large plastic ziploc bag. Add salad dressing and soy sauce, just a good balance of the two and enough to cover the steak, to the bag. Seal it and move the steak around a bit to ensure it’s covered well. Allow it to marinate for at least an hour and up to 24, as much time as you have.

When you’re ready, heat the grill. Grill about 5 minutes per side, or to desired doneness. Remove the steak from the grill and allow it to rest for 5 minutes. Then slice, serve (with grilled veggies and some crusty bread!) and enjoy! Happy summer!
