Need a flank steak "quick" marinade recipe
 
After using the search function extensively, I'm even more confused. Many recipes say to marinate 4 hours or overnight, or even days, but a couple said an hour or less. Why? .....anyone have a "fast acting" marinade they want to share? I'll be home in an hour and want to eat it before bedtime!

A little worcestershire (just a little wiped over the surface), salt, black pepper, and granluated garlic. Let it set for about 20 minutes and you are good to go. Cook to medium rare, rest, slice against the grain.

A thin Teriyaki. Speed it up by vacuum sealing it like they do on Iron Chef.

My favorite marinade for flank steak is robusto Italian salad dressing. I just pour a small bottle in the zip lock bag with the steak, and flip it a couple/few times overnight. Certainly couldn't get any easier. Comes out fantastic every time. :wink:

Oooh... I love cilantro, but have never tried it with this marinade. I'll put that on my to-do list.

Grilled Flank Steak with rosemary

cup olive oil
cup soy sauce
5 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon black pepper
3 tablespoons fresh rosemary
2 tablespoons chopped garlic

Combine ingredients in a zip lock bag with flank steak; marinate in fridge for about 2 hours. Grill on medium high for about 5 minutes on each side for medium rare.

Update
 
Thanks for all of the stellar replies! I "averaged" a bunch of them, marinated 1/2 hour, got the cast iron skillet scorching hot and shot for rare. It came out really good. Next time I'll plan ahead for a longer marinade time, and use lump on the kettle for more heat and crusting. All in all, it was quite tasty though, with yummy leftovers for tomorrow at work! Thanks again!!!
