steak knives at the ready…

looking for a classic steak dinner but tired of the lack of variety? trying different cuts and marinades is always a good trick.

this marinade is a great option. these asian flavors are not over-powering, but add an interesting sweetness to the steak.

flank steak is great because it feeds a lot of people, is not too expensive and is fairly lean.

this recipe is perfect for upcoming summer BBQs, so let’s get grillin’!
