Pour over steak in plastic bag. Marinate, refrigerated, at least 6 hours and up to overnight, turning every few hours.

  • Preheat a grill or grill pan over high heat.

  • Remove steak from marinade and pat dry. Place steak on grill and cook, turning once, until cooked to medium, about 5 minutes per side. Remove steak from grill and let stand 5 to 10 minutes before slicing against the grain.
