Author Notes: I have a variety of marinades I make based around soy sauce and lime juice, inspired by my love of Asian cuisine. This is the perfect one for flank steak--fabulous any time of year. I always taste marinades before using them--if any of the flavors seem out of balance, add more of the other ingredients to counter balance it. - The Spiced Life
Makes enough for 1 flank steak
- 3 tablespoons Chinese superior dark soy sauce or SE Asian double soy sauce (do not use light)
- 4 teaspoons dark brown sugar, to taste
- 1 1/2 limes, juiced (if they are dry, use 2-3)
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 3-4 garlic cloves, smashed, peeled and roughly chopped
- 1 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
- Whisk all of the ingredients together. Dip a finger to taste–neither the lime nor the soy should totally overwhelm, but rather should be balanced. The sweetness should be very faint.
- Place in a plastic bag with raw steak. Before you grill the steak, shake the garlic paper off of the steak. Grill to desired doneness (I recommend rare or medium rare).
