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
tablespoons Chinese superior dark soy sauce or SE Asian double soy sauce (do not use light)
teaspoons dark brown sugar, to taste
limes, juiced (if they are dry, use 2-3)
teaspoon ground coriander
garlic cloves, smashed, peeled and roughly chopped
tablespoons 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).
