Marinated Flank Steak

Easy, quick, yet very tasty, this Flank Steak is a wonderful mid week dinner. Just a few high power, high flavor ingredients makes this steak melt in your mouth, in under 30 minutes.
Here's what you need:
One 1 1/2 pound flank Steak
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup minced garlic
1 Tbls Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbls freshly grated ginger, or 2 tsp dry powdered ginger
Fresh cracked pepper
(1) gallon size zip top bag

Put your zip top bag in a bowl. Put the steak and the rest of the ingredients in the bag.
Let this hang out together for as little as 15 minutes, or as long as 8 hours. Generally, if you can marinate the steak for about 4 hours, it gets nice and tender, (thank the vinegar). However, if you're jammed for time, give it some flavor, and the meat will be fine.
Line a sheet pan with foil. Put the steak on a rack. Pour some marinade from the bag over the steak.
Place the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat coil in the pre-heated broiler.
Close the oven door. Broil for 5 minutes on one side. Turn the steak over, brush with marinade.
Return to the broiler for another 4 minutes. At my house, the steak is MANDATED, not requested, to be rare. Medium rare if I misjudge the cooking time. If you like your steak more done, leave it under the broiler for another minute or two. Keep in mind that once steak is brown all the way through, it will be tough as nails. Might as well buy a pack of jerky.
Remove to a cutting board, cover, (I use a big bowl), and rest for 5-10 minutes.
Slice the steak into very thin slices, slicing against the grain. If you slice with the grain, the steak will be tough and hard to chew.
Put it on a nice platter.
Take some of the sauce left in the pan.
And pour it over the steak.
Serve this with garlic roasted fingerling potatoes and a Caesar salad, and you have one garlicky love fest!
Bon Appetit'!
