Grilled Marinated Flank Steak

Mary Beth from Cupcakes and Crinoline is back today with a great grill recipe that you really need to try!  Change up your routine with this grilled marinated flank steak.  YUM!  

It’s so nice to grill when the weather is hot and you don’t want to turn your oven on and heat up the whole house.  Don’t limit yourself to burgers and hot dogs, although they are so much better when grilled, instead treat your family to a delicious grilled and marinated flank steak.  This recipe has a few steps but is easy to make and because of the marinade, you can make it in the morning before the day gets hectic and then pull it out of the refrigerator when your ready to grill.
