Korean Marinade for Flank Steak

Hello Foodie Fans! Have you missed me? I’ve been a busy, baking lady this past week. Check out posts to come to see what I have been up too!

recipe

Marinade (for about 3-4lbs of meat – flank steak) easily doubled

3-4 lbs meat
1/2 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup white sugar

1 tablespoon sesame seeds

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 bunch of scallions, washed and rinsed well. (This will be simply added in between the beef later for the final layer of flavor. I used to chop scallions into the marinade, but would end up with too many charred bits of scallion which just wasn’t that appetizing. If you have no scallion, feel free to throw in some white onion wedges in with the beef after marinating.)

Set aside scallions and meat. Mix everything else together in a large bowl (marinade ingredients.)

Quickly rinse the meat

Dunk steak into the marinade, making sure to submerge it and coat all sides of it.

Layer in green onions as you place in the flank.

Marinate at least 8 hours or overnight if possible. I personally have found that a 24 hour soak yields the best flavor.

You can grill it on the bbq or broil it in the oven for about 12-15 minutes, depending on your preference for rare, medium or well.
