Some people believe that “it’s all about the cut of meat” that makes a great steak. In my opinion, that is only partially true. I can tell you that if you have a great marinade like the one I’m going to share with you, you can make lesser quality steaks or cuts of meat taste fantastic. So without any further adieu, here you go. 


2 pound beef flank steak


For the marinade:

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1/3 cup soy sauce

1 tsp ginger powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp sesame oil


In a bowl, mix the apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, ginger powder, garlic powder and sesame oil. Place flank steak in a 9×13″ casserole dish. Pour marinade on top. Cover dish and let marinate in refrigerator for several hours until over night. To get the most out of your marinade, be sure to flip the steak half way through. (The vinegar will help tenderize the steak and add sweetness.) 

Set oven to broil. Remove the steak from the marinade, shake off the excess, and place it in the middle of a broiler pan. Place the pan in the oven on the top rack. Depending on the steak’s thickness cook for 7-10 minutes per side. This also depends on your taste; whether you like the steak rare, medium rare or well done. Also remember that the steak is thicker in the middle so the ends might get a little charred. 

Remove steak from broiler pan and place on cutting board. Let rest for 5-10 minutes so juices reabsorb and you don’t bleed the meat. 

Slice against grain. Serve and enjoy!
