Looking for a nice savory marinade? Try this fantastic recipe for strip steaks such as flank, flat iron, or skirt steaks.
The purpose of a steak marinade is to help enhance the flavor and tenderize tougher cuts of meat. The longer that the meat is soaked in the marinade the more tender the meat will become. Most cooks recommend to marinade your meats for at least 2 hours, but you will get even better results to let the meat soak overnight. It is believed by many that it is important to have at least one acidic ingredient in the marinade such as vinegar, wine or a citrus juice. The connective tissues in the meat break down better with the acid so the meat becomes more tender. There are also some schools of thought that an acidic ingredient does not actually break down the tissues all the way through the entire piece of meat. I do know that I enjoy a good marinade. I have always been given high praise whenever I whip up this marinade and grill steaks for Father’s Day. The flank steak ends up tender and juicy! There is never any leftover meat on the platter.
