Honey & Ginger Marinated Flank Steak

When I was in labor, my husband got the bright idea to purchase bees and set up beehives in the backyard. He asked me if it was okay when my contractions were about two minutes apart. Seriously - who is going to say no when they are completely focused on surviving ridiculous back labor and contractions?

Needless to say, I spent this past weekend in a warm garage helping to harvest honey. In honor of the honey that's sitting on my kitchen counter - this will be a week of honey-based recipes.

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, freshly grated
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 lbs flank steak
  1. Combine soy sauce, honey, vinegar, garlic powder, ginger and oil. Mix well.
  2. Make light diagonal slashes on each side of the flank steak in a diamond pattern.
  3. Place meat in shallow baking dish and pour marinade over it. Cover and refrigerate for four hours.
  4. Grill steak for 6 to 8 minutes on each side. 
  5. Let steak rest five minutes before serving.
