Here's what you need: flank steaks, soy sauce, honey, white vinegar, green onions, garlic powder, ginger and vegetable oil.
Start by trimming your flank steaks of any visible grizzle or fat, then poke several times with a fork. In a sealable container, combine all the ingredients except the flank steak. Add in the steak and turn it over in the marinade until it is all covered. Place lid on container and refrigerate for 4-5 hours, poking steaks and flipping periodically. After it has marinated for several hours, place the steaks on a preheated grill. (High heat for first couple of minutes to sear the meat...then reduce heat to medium.)
Depending on how you like your meat cooked, continue grilling for 10-15 minutes for rare (125 degrees), 15-19 minutes for medium (140 degrees), flipping once during the grill time. Cooking times include searing time. Use your meat thermometer for best results.
Remove meat from heat and allow to "rest" for a couple of minutes. Move steak to a cutting board. Using a very sharp knife, or even an electric knife, thinly slice the flank steak against the grain.
1-2 flank steaks
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. white vinegar
2 chopped green onion
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
3/4 cup vegetable oil
Marinate flank steaks for 4 to 5 hours ahead. Poke steaks with fork and flip periodically. Place steaks on a preheated grill at high temperature and sear for a couple of minutes per side. Grill steaks for 10 to 20 minutes, flipping once. (Rare 10-15 minutes; Medium 15-19 minutes). Remove from heat, allow to rest for a few minutes. Thinly slice against the grain.
