This flank steak is just about the simplest, most delicious piece of meat I've ever eaten!

1 large flank steak
Mrs. Dash Original Seasoning

marinade:
1/2 cup (or so) reduced sodium soy sauce
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 T. Sriracha hot sauce

Put the steak in a large ziploc and add the marinade ingredients. Marinate for at least 12 hours, preferably longer.

When the steak is done marinating, sprinkle it with Mrs. Dash.

When you're ready to grill the steak, you can do it inside on a grill pan or outside on the grill (I do it on the grill pan). Your pan needs to be smokin' hot. Once the pan is hot, I spray on a little Pam and grill for 5-7 minutes on each side (less if you're doing it outside on the grill). This will yield a medium rare steak, so if you like it differently, adjust your cook time accordingly.

Enjoy! :eating2:

Just adding my little hint:

When the steak is done, wrap it tightly in foil and let it sit for ten minutes. This makes it even better and easier to carve in thin strips. Flank steaks are pretty big and all meat so be sure to plan for leftovers. I just weighed mine and it's 2 pounds. It's going back into the freezer to be used for a company meal as it's probably eight servings!

Great idea about the foil, I'll do that next time!
