Everyone needs a few good marinade recipes in your back pocket for summertime grilling. That’s just a fact. Here’s a delicious marinade you can put together with other proteins–it’s basic and straightforward and delicious–but I really like it paired with grilled flank steak. It’s strong and crisp and holds up really nicely next to the melt in your mouth goodness of a well-grilled cut of flank steak. Pop this marinade on your meat and then grill it up when you’re ready. 10-15 minutes on the grill and you’re golden. Here you go.
WHAT YOU NEED
* 1lb flank steak
* 1/3C olive oil
* 3t (heaping) minced garlic
* 2t dried oregano
* 1t salt
* 1/4t freshly ground black pepper
* juice of 1/2 a lemon
WHAT TO DO
Add all of the ingredients to a large zip-top bag. Make sure to get all the air out of the bag and close it up. Then massage the bag around to make sure the marinade gets over all the meat. Refrigerate for as much or as little time as you have, anywhere from a half hour to 6 or 8 hours even.
Grill 5-7 minutes per side, to desired doneness. Allow to rest 3-5 minutes before slicing and serving. BADDA BOOM, BADDA BING!
