Marinated Flank Steak

This recipe was provided by Natalie.  I was only able to marinade the flank steak for approx 6 hours before grilling but the flavor imparted to the meat was great.  Natalie recommends marinating overnight.  Next time you have a craving for fajitas, fire up the grill, and give this marinade a try.

1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ginger, finely chopped
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1.5 teaspoons garlic powder
3-4 green onions, finely chopped

Thoroughly mix all the ingredients to form the marinade.  Place the marinade in a one gallon Ziploc bag, add the flank steak, and marinade in the refrigerator overnight.  Grill over direct medium high heat for approx 5 minutes per side or until the desired degree of doneness is reached.  After removing the flank steak from the grill allow the meat to rest for at least 5 minutes.  For maximum tenderness slice the meat against the grain and on a bias.
