You must try this spicy flat iron steak recipe. Marinated steak strips on wooden skewers, steeped in a simple teryiaki solution, then grilled to perfection in just minutes. Done either on the barbecue grill or under the broiler in your oven. Either way, it’s a tasty treat. Add some corn on the cob and a green salad and you have a delectable, easy clean-up outdoor meal.
It’s appropriate for a backyard get together with friends because you have already done the preparations the day before. So you are able to join the party.
I got this teriyaki marinade recipe from a Japanese friend of mine. The original recipe called for flank steak. I use the flat iron because it is cheaper and it tastes every bit as good as flank steak. Take it from me, more expensive is not always better when it comes to meat.
I used to make a double batch of these teriyaki strips with flank steak. I would put the leftovers, with meat still on the skewers, wrapped tightly in foil, in the refrigerator. Then, when we wanted a snack, I would pull them out and we would chow down. They are just as good cold as they are right off the barbeque. The leftovers can be
Flat Iron Steak Recipe
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 1 clove of garlic, chopped
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
- 1 tbl honey, more if you prefer your teriyaki sweeter
- 1 1/2 lb flat iron steak or flank steak
- Combine soy sauce, white wine, garlic, sugar, ginger and honey. Stir well and make sure honey is thoroughly incorporated into the mixture.
- Slice the steak in very thin strips, making sure to cut away from yourself. Slice from the top of the meat, not the sides and against the grain.
- Place the meat in a glass dish with a cover. Pour marinade over meat. Place lid on dish or cover tightly with plastic wrap. Marinate overnight.
- When marinating time is up, thread the meat accordion style on bamboo or wooden skewers that have been soaked in water for 10 minutes or so. Prepare your grill or grill under the broiler. Cook on one side for 3 to 5 minutes, turn, cook another 2 to 3 minutes or until done. Remove from the fire. Serve. Compliment these teryiaki strips with some steamed rice or corn on the cob and potato salad or a green salad with a red wine dressing.
