Servings 4 servings


  • 1-2 Pound Flank Steak
  • 1/4 cup Soy sauce
  • 4 cloves Garlic Pressed
  • 1/2 Lemon (Juiced)
  • 1 tsp Freshly ground black pepper


  • Score flank steak on the diagonal, criss cross, both sides, with a sharp knife
  • Press 2 cloves of garlic into the scores on each side
  • Add fresh ground pepper to both sides
  • Juice the lemon onto both sides
  • Cover with wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Remove from refrigerator for at least 10 minutes before cooking. Preheat grill on high, or cast iron skillet if cooking inside. (Cast iron requires a bit of olive oil in the pan).
  • Cook on each side for at least 5 minutes before turning. It's delicious when there is a slight char to the meat.
  • Cook to desired temperature. Medium-rare is preferred with a slight pinkness to the meat.
  • Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Cut the meat thinly on a slight angle. I find it's easy to slice the meat vertically (down the center) into 2 long pieces, especially if the steak is fairly wide. This way you can wrap any unused portions that aren't sliced, which prevents the meat from drying out when reheating it.
  • Serve on a salad, standalone with side, in tortilla... however you want!
