For summertime grilling and specifically with the 4th of July right around the corner, many of us naturally reach for pricy steaks--rib-eyes, filet mignons--but they aren't the only cuts in the case. Thin steaks, like flank, skirt or flatiron are perfect candidates for marinades. I have tried a few cuts for this marinade, but the best and tastiest for this specific marinade is flank.

Mix oil, vinegar, Worcestershire Sauce and soy sauces, mustard and garlic powder, pour into a gallon-size zipper-lock bag, add steak and let marinade for at least 30 minutes or up to 3 hours. (I have found 3 hours is optimal if you can for the marinade to really take effect).
Heat gas grill, lightening all burners on high for at least 10 minutes or build a hot charcoal fire. Add steak, close lid and grill, turning only once to desired doneness, 3 1/2 minutes per side for medium rare and about 4 minutes per side for medium.
Let rest for 5 minutes.
Slice thin and serve.
A Side Note...

On a side note, my husband and I have bought and tried many different marinades and none of them have even come close to this marinade for Flank Steak we happened to just stumble upon. I hope you try it and love it as much as our family does. One last thing, Happy Grilling!!!
