Flank Steak, Dad's Favorite Recipe

Flank Steak, Dad's Favorite Recipe

There's something about marinated flank steak -- it just looks, smells, and tastes spectacular. We have trimmed the sodium, fat, and calories in this recipe. There's a health bonus, too: a lower-fat marinade also helps decrease the amount of HCAs (heterocyclic amines, which are thought to work with fat in foods to promote cancer growth) that could form and deposit on the meat.


  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 6 tablespoons concentrated chicken broth (lower sodium if available)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 green onions (the white and part of the green) cut into thin, diagonal slices
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger (or 2 teaspoons fresh minced ginger)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (or 2 teaspoons fresh minced garlic)
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 medium-large flank steak (about 1 1/2 pounds)


Step 1
 Combine canola oil, chicken broth, honey, soy sauce, green onions, ginger, garlic powder, and Worcestershire sauce in a medium bowl with a whisk; set aside.
Step 2
 Remove any visible fat from the flank. Lightly score the meat with a serrated knife, cutting about 1/4-inch into the meat in a crisscross pattern (leave about an inch between cuts) on the top and bottom of the flank.
Step 3
Put the flank in a rectangular plastic container, add the marinade, and coat the steak well all over. Cover and marinate the flank steak all day or overnight, turning occasionally.
Step 4
Grill 10-15 minutes on each side or until cooked to desired doneness. Use a carving knife to cut diagonally across the grain of the meat into slices of your desired thickness.
