Teriyaki Style Flank Steak
Marinade:(works with Chicken and Veggies too)
½ cup soy sauce
½ cup sugar
2-3 Tbsp mirin (Japanese rice wine) or sherry or white wine
1 peeled smashed garlic clove
1 Tbsp peeled smashed ginger
(Here is the trick I promised – Trader Joe’s, and probably other stores as well, sells frozen cubes of ginger and garlic. Just drop one of each in the marinade – it doesn’t get easier.)
12-16 oz flank steak – cut in 1-inch strips for skewers (or whole if you must)
Marinate steak 2-3 hours or up to 8 hours
Light grill or broiler.
Thread steak on skewers.
Grill to desired doneness, turning once.
This is really quick, about 2 minutes a side for crispy outside and pink middle.
