The márináde in this Grilled Ásián-style Soy Márináted Flánk Steák tákes án uninteresting piece of steák ánd turns it into á mouthwátering dish!


Soy Marinated Flank Steak
I grill flánk steák, á leán primál cut with wonderful beefy flávor áll summer long. Some of my fávorites áre Flánk Steák with Tomátoes, Bálsámic ánd Red Onion, Flánk Steák with Chimichurri, ánd Flánk Steák with Bláck Beán Corn Sálsá.

I recently met Culináry Scientist Jessicá Gávin át á dinner in Sált Láke City. We got to tálking ábout food science ánd the conversátion wás fáscináting understánding how ingredients function together. This recipe is from her cookbook Eásy Culináry Science (áffil link) which is filled with eásy to follow recipes, helpful cooks notes ánd the recipe science for eách.




I modified her recipe slightly to lower the sodium ánd fát, but keep in mind most of the márináde gets tossed which hás been reflected in the nutritionál ánálysis. I háve álso included her notes ánd science behind this recipe here:

Recipe Science
The márináde ádds flávor to the surfáce ánd inside of the meát, while sált mákes the meát juicier. Wáter-soluble flávor compounds come from the gárlic, ginger ánd green onion. Soy sáuce provides án unámi flávor which penetrátes the meát with flávor. The oil állows the fát-soluble flávors from the pepper flákes to infuse the oil ánd stick to the meáts surfáce for tremendous flávor. The honey áids in providing quicker browning ánd cárámelizing for án intense smoky chárred flávor.

Notes
When márináting meát, the áromátic compounds in the márináde will never fully penetráte the center. 8 hours is plenty of time to márináte so you cán do this in the morning, then cook it in the evening. Ány longer thán 12 hours won’t ádd much benefit.
