Check out a recipe for steak below.
Allow steaks to marinade overnight to maximize the penetration of marinade.
Use tongs or a spatula when flipping meats during grilling. Never puncture the meat while cooking, as this allows precious juices to escape.
Allow meats to cool 5-7 minutes before slicing, as this allows time for the juices to settle and reabsorb within the fibers of the meat as opposed to running off during slicing.
Slice the flank steak into thin strips on a bias against the grain of the meat to ensure tenderness.
In a large bowl, combine all the marinade ingredients, minus the honey, which will be used later. Mix marinade thoroughly. Place both flank steaks in a large Ziploc storage bag. Pour the marinade in the bag over both steaks and seal bag, taking care to remove as much air from the bag as possible. Place bag in refrigerator and chill for several hours, preferably overnight.
When ready to cook, preheat grill to high heat. Remove steaks from marinade bag and place on grill. Sear steaks for 4 minutes; flip and sear second side for the same amount of time. While the second side sears, lightly coat the cooked side of each steak with a thin layer of honey. Once second side has seared for 4 minutes, flip steaks and sear for an additional 2 minutes, coating the second side with honey as well. Sear second side for 2 minutes and remove from heat. Allow steaks to cool for 5-7 minutes before carving.
Serving Suggestion: Top with sauteed onions and mushrooms!
