My deepest apologies for not posting since April. A number of factors led to me really not cooking very much. This all culminated in me eating a whole bunch of terrible food, and not having anything of substance to post.
However, stress level is significantly lower, so culinary adventures have resumed!
Tonight's specialty is some grilled, marinated flank steak.
Couldn't come up with a more creative name for this... Sorry folks, but sometimes it is what it is, and this time, it is just delicious.
And how easy! I stuck this in the marinade last night, let it hang out overnight, and slapped it on the grill tonight! Served it with a baked potato and some corn on the cob. Love summer food!

|Look at that adorable honey bear. SO CUTE.|
- 2 lb flank steak
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 4 cloves of garlic (or 2 cloves of elephant garlic! Yup. It's real.) crushed/minced
- 2 tablespoonsful red wine vinegar
- 1/3 cup soy sauce (I opted for low sodium. I didn't want to overpower the steak with saltiness, plus, healthier!)
- 1/4 cup honey (I got the kind that is in a bear shape. Because it was TOO ADORABLE to pass up!)
- 1/2 teaspoonful ground black pepper
- Score the flank steak with cuts about 1/4 inch thick
|Hard to see, but I did it crisscross. You can choose to just do it one way if you'd like.|
- Combine all the ingredients (mix well!)
|I wish I had 10 whisks like this. Love it!|
- Trim the steak if you need to. Mine was really fatty
- Put the steak in the marinade either in a container or a freezer bag to marinate. I did it overnight, but if you're not going to do that, do it for at least 2 hours. The longer, the juicier!
- Grill! Use high heat. We cooked it sort of indirectly, on the cooler spot of the grill, because we were a little nervous the honey would burn. Cook it until it is the level of done-ness that you prefer!
- Let it rest for a few minutes before slicing, and make sure you slice on the diagonal.
P.S. Kitchenaid mixed due in the mail in a few days. There will be LOTS of baking ahead! Also, I do take requests/suggestions!
