This is such a simple and delicious recipe and perfect for showing off your grilling skills without possessing any of those skills! It’s all in the marinade, and luckily, making the marinade just means dumping all the ingredients into a large bowl and stirring it. It’s also great because flank steak is such a cheap steak, so you can grill this all the time!

[Note: This is actually a recipe I had posted on an old blog (before I started, but I wanted to share it with everyone as the BBQ season fast approaches (at least in the US). The recipe is at the end, but first, let me tempt you with some photos!]

  1. Cut the flank steak into manageable pieces if it’s not already cut so.
  2. Create the marinade using all the ingredients (except the steak).
  3. Place each piece of steak into a ziplock bag and divide the marinade equally between the bags.
  4. Seal the bags and marinate overnight if possible. I like to use olive oil if marinating overnight or melted coconut oil if only marinating for an hour at room temperature.
  5. Then simply grill them! You can use a meat thermometer to get the steak to the rareness you want. Typically, for medium rare, I grill it on a hot grill with the cover down 3 minutes on each side (internal temperature of the grill is 500-600F).


Coconut oil will solidify when the temperature drops – I don’t find this to be problematic if you cover the steak well with the marinade, but an alternative is to use olive oil, which works just as well.

How do you marinade this overnight in the fridge? Doesn’t the coconut oil solidify?

My coconut oil was liquified when I started this recipe (its THAT hot here) but after adding the refrigerated coconut aminos it solidified.

am I missing something?

    Yep – it does solidify but that’s ok, just make sure to lie the steak flat in the fridge so the marinade distributes evenly over it.
