Do you like flank steak? I don’t make it that often as it is a bit tougher than other cuts of beef, but when you marinate it before hand, like I did with this Soy Ginger Grilled Flank Steak, the meat is super moist, tender and loaded with flavor.
According to an article in the June/July issue of Taste of Home Magazine, grilling meat over high temps triggers the formation of carcinogenic chemicals called heterocyclic amines (HCA’s). They say if you marinate meat for at least 1 hour before you grill, you can cut the HCA formation by 57%-88%. Marinating meat in spicy liquids that contain oil, water, vinegar and herbs is especially effective.
I always like to marinate any meat before grilling because I feel it’s adds it’s own uniqueness to whatever you happen to be cooking whether it’s chicken, pork, beef or fish (yes, I do grill shrimp for the hubby and kids!). This Soy Ginger Grilled Flank Steak contains a few simple ingredients like soy sauce, oil, ginger, garlic and brown sugar and creates a fabulous, flavorful meal. ~Enjoy!
