An Asian influenced citrus marinade for grilled flank steak.


  • 2 Tbsp good olive oil
  • 1/2 grapefruit, juiced (1/4 cup juice)
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • sea salt (I used 1 tsp sea salt)
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds flank steak


  1. Mix marinade ingredients together.
  2. Lightly score flank steak both horizontally and vertically on both sides.
  3. Add meat to marinade and make sure both sides have been covered in marinade. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Grill meat for 5 minutes per side. Flank steak is not meant to be cooked until well done; doing so will see it become dry and tough so I recommend medium rare as the best choice but no more than medium for best results.
  5. Cuts like flank steak require that you slice against the grain; holding your knife at an angle to produce nice slices of meat. Here's a great simple video of this procedure.

Recipe Notes

NOTES: I love my Food Saver and if pushed for time will use the marinating dish and Food Saver attachment to shorten marinating time to 1-2 hours. Works great
