Serve these flavor-packed steaks with Tomato Salad with Olives and Lemon Zest or Marinated Zucchini with Mint.


  • 1 cup soy sauce

  • ¼ cup packed light-brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • 1 teaspoon red-pepper flakes

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 flank steak (about 2 pounds)

  • Vegetable oil, for grates


  1. In a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, whisk together soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire, mustard, red-pepper flakes, and pepper. Place steak in dish and cover dish tightly with plastic wrap. Swirl dish so that marinade coats the top of steak. Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours, turning steak occasionally.

  2. Heat grill to high. Remove steak from marinade, letting excess drip off. Pour marinade into a saucepan and simmer over medium-high heat until reduced by half, about 10 minutes.

  3. Clean and lightly oil hot grates. Grill steak, covered, 6 minutes; turn, brush with glaze, and grill until medium-rare, 6 minutes more. Let rest 8 to 10 minutes before slicing.
