Marinated Flank Steak

Source: Everyday Food, June 2006


  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 quart apple juice
  • 1/4 cup whiskey (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for grates
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce, such as Tabasco
  • 2 flank steaks (about 1 1/2 pounds each), pricked all over with a fork


  1. In a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, whisk together garlic, 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper, apple juice, whiskey (if using), mustard, oil, Worcestershire, and hot sauce. Add steaks, and turn to coat; marinate at room temperature, turning occasionally, 1 hour, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 1 day.

  2. Lift steaks from marinade onto a platter; set aside. Make sauce: Place reserved marinade in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat; cook until thickened and reduced to about 1 cup, 20 to 25 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Meanwhile, heat grill to high; lightly oil grates. Place steaks on grill. Cook, turning once, until well browned and cooked to desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes per side for medium-rare (130 to 135 degrees on an instant-read thermometer). Transfer steaks to a cutting board, and tent with aluminum foil. Let rest 10 minutes before thinly slicing against the grain. Serve with sauce.

    Any suggestions if you don't have access to an outdoor grille?
