Sweet and Savory Flank Steak

Sweet and Savory Flank Steak (Carne’ Asada suburban style)
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C olive oil
1/2 C soy sauce
1 C pineapple juice
1 T freshly grated ginger
4-5 garlic cloves, finely minced
up to 2 lbs flank steak

Combine first 6 ingredients for the marinade. Whisk together until combined. Remove 1/4 cup and set aside.

Score flank steak with a knife diagonally on both sides. This just means to run a sharp knife through it in the pattern below. You don't want to actually cut through the steak, just lightly score- like 1/8 inch- into it. This will help tenderize the meat.

Place steak in large ziploc bag and pour marinade (excluding the 1/4 C you set aside) over it. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. Take out of fridge 30 minutes before grilling. Place steak on grill and cook for 5-10 minutes per side, depending on the size. Use the 1/4 C marinade you set aside to brush over steak in the last few minutes of grilling. (That's a little trick I use for pretty much any meat that has a marinade just to splash it with an extra punch of flavor at the end) Flank steak should still be pink in the middle when done.

Remove from grill and let stand for 5 minutes before cutting so the juices can redistribute. Always cut flank steak against the grain, in thin slices to serve.
