Just prior to putting steaks on, add 3 citrus wood chunks and 3 cherry wood chunks for enhanced flavor. Cook steaks for 2 minutes per side and they will come out medium to medium rare depending on the thickness. Take steaks off the grill and tent them with aluminum foil.

    Chimichurri Sauce
    1 Combine all contents in food processor and pulse until blended well. Consistency you are looking for is such that it will not run off of steak. Add water as needed to loosen consistency. Adjust ingredients to your preference. This recipe is heavy on the garlic. Refrigerate until ready for steaks.

    Flank Steak Marinade

    2 C cloudy orange French dressing
    1/2 C lemon juice
    3/4 C soy sauce
    1/4 C Worcestershire sauce
    1/4 C yellow mustard
    1 clove crushed garlic or equivalent garlic pd.

    Shake well. Cut very shallow X's in steak against the grain.
    Marinate meat overnight in about 1/2 C of this sauce.
    Refrigerate remaining sauce in a glass jar.
    This is a good seasoning on burgers, either in the ground meat or as a BBQ sauce.
    Also good as seasoning on leftover meat sliced thinly and sautéed.
    Good for chicken BBQ too.

    Thanks for the help guys, still not sure what one to use, Cary's Marinated Flank steak sounds good too.

    Hey Tim, my Easter Eggsperiment was a little on the wild side but good, Teriyaki Tangerine Flank Steaks. Leftovers with a brown gravy were very nice. LOL, strange but true! This was the first time I cut the flank steaks to the size you see on the egg. I cut them into 3-4" steaks so they would soak up the marinade better. I can only guess that it helped and would try it again.

    Teriyaki Sauce is probably one of the simplest and is good. A friend of mine recommends Good Seasons Italian Salad Dressing which sounds very good to me as you can select the vinegar and oil that you make the dressing out of to make a flavor all your own. A good red wine vinegar and good extra virgin olive oil would be very good I think. There are many different flavored vinegars and quality of oils to experiment with. That will probably be my next eggsperiment!

    Teriyaki Sauce is strong and takes less time to marinade, any where from 30 minutes might do, it all depends on how strong a flavor you wish. The Good Seasons dressing can go 24 hours. I have not tried it yet but would think it would be pretty flexible, where it is not as strong I would go longer.

    Good luck, looking forward to your flank steak post. :)

    I use Hoisin sauce (chinese dipping sauce) and let it marinate for 24 hours. Cook at about 375 Deg. until the meat is 140 Deg. Don't over cook! Thinly slice cross grain on an angle.

    I've had nothing but compliments. Simple, but a sure thing.
