Grilled Flank Steak - by Request!

Posted Oct 2, 2011 in Food
So I finally got my hands on flank steak. Note to self and to others: wait for a sale. This chunk of meat was 6.99 a lb! BUT it is a lovely cut of meat. Just handle with care because if you over cook this cut of meat it will ruin it and frankly for what you're paying you do not want to have an overcooked dried up chunk o' meat.
I got this recipe from Claire Robinson from her wonderful cookbook 5 Ingredient Fix which illustrates how 5 simple ingredients can produce a tasty and complex dish. Plus if you're lazy this is the perfect cookbook for you. hehe.
The original recipe was intended to be an appetizer. It's actually supposed to be beef roll ups but I wanted a main, so I made kabobs. You like my creativity don't you?
Here is the recipe - Enjoy!

Ingredients - Serves 4
1 pound flank steak, cut against the grain into 1" thick strips
2 limes, juiced
2 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 to 2 Tablespoons Sriracha sauce
Smash all your ingredients together (minus the steak). Now rub down the steak with all the love in your heart.
Let it marinate for 2-4 hours but no longer because I heard somewhere from someone who knows something that limes and lemons start to cook your meat after 4 hours. ;)
Preheat the grill to high heat.
Skewer your meat or if you're rolling it, follow the directions in the link. :)

Cook for 2-3 minutes on one side and then like a minute TOPS on the other side...we want this wonderful meat to be pink and tender in the middle.
