grilled flank steak

Kate from The Parsley Thief, my favorite food blog, posted this recipe for flank steak.  I made it Sunday eve and it was absolutely delicious and so easy! 

Grilled Flank Steak

From Gourmet Magazine, June 1998
Serves 8

1 flank steak {any size will do}
4 large shallots, finely chopped
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce

Cut the steak into 4 equal pieces. This helps the steak cook more quickly & creates more surface area for the marinate to make contact with the steak...yum! Season with a generous sprinkling of kosher salt & freshly ground pepper & place them in a large resealable plastic bag. Combine the shallots, vinegar, sugar & soy sauce in a mixing bowl. Pour the marinade into the bag & toss everything around a bit, to coat the steaks evenly.
Transfer to the refrigerator & marinate for at least 2 hours, or up to 2 days.
Preheat the grill & lightly oil the grates. Remove the steak from the bag & discard the marinade. Grill for 5-7 minutes per side for medium-rare {depending on the thickness}. Transfer to a cutting board & let them rest for 10 minutes. Slice on a 45 degree angle, across the grain, into thin slices & serve.
