SESAME GRILLED FLANK STEAK (Recipe Adapted from Just a Pinch Kitchen)

This recipe serves roughly 8-10 people, so I’ll double it for this tailgate and use 4 flank steaks equalling roughly 7 1/2 lbs.

1 c red wine
3/4 c red wine vinegar
1/4 c sesame oil
1/2 c extra virgin olive oil
4 TBSP garlic, chopped
3 TBSP fresh ginger, coarsely chopped
3 TSP thyme, leaves (substitue 1 tsp. dried)
1 TSP cracked black pepper
1/2 TSP coarse sea salt
2 lb beef flank steaks

Whisk all marinade ingredients in a bowl.

Trim any excess fat, and then score each flank steak against the grain.

Place the marinade in two separate gallon sized zip lock bags and add one flank steak to each bag. Zip bags closed and shake to evenly coat the meat.

Place in a pan and into fridge. Marinate the steak overnight turning several times to evenly coat the meat.

On a preheated grill over medium high heat (375 F), first sear the flank steak on each side, approximately 1-2 minutes per side. Continue cooking about 6 minutes or more per side (depending on how you like it), turning once. When the internal temperature reaches desired doneness, remove from grill and rest ~10 minutes under a piece of foil tented over the top. Slice the flank steak against the grain, and serve as is or with rolls for sandwiches.

My brother and sister-in-law gave me this cool herb chopper last time they came for a visit, and now it’s my favorite gadget!
