Perfect for a hearty salad, or filling for a delicious sandwich.

A simple and delicious recipe with a savory soy and rosemary marinade. Perfect for a hearty salad, or filling for a delicious sandwich.



  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup worcestershire sauce
  • 1 clove of garlic, smashed and diced
  • ½ tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • ½ tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely diced
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper, a few turns of the grinder




  1. In a large freezer bag add all the marinade ingredients and shake, combining all together. Add the meat to the bag, zip it, and try to avoid excess air.
  2. Put freezer bag into the refrigerator for a couple of hours (up to six) and occasionally shake it up, making sure the marinade is being evenly distributed to the meat.


  1. Warm up grill to medium high heat using direct method and remove meat from freezer bag. Target 450 – 500 degrees inside the cooking chamber.
  2. Sprinkle the meat with dry rub on both sides.
  3. Grill over direct heat for approximately 4-5 minutes on each side for a medium rare steak, but adjust time based on your desired doneness. Check temperature with a good digital thermometer for your desired temp. We aim for 130-135 degrees internal temperature.
  4. Remove from grill and let sit at least 10 minutes to allow juices to settle.
  5. Slice across the grain in thin slices and serve over a salad or as a filling for sandwiches.


  1. Prepare Chimichurri sauce or use your favorite salad dressing.
  2. To a large bowl add the romaine, avocado, cherry tomatoes, corn, and onions. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice and Chimichurri. Toss salad.
  3. Add the flank steak to the salad for a family style meal, or plate the salad, and then add the flank steak for individual portions.


This recipe is great with hanger steak, flat iron, or bavette steak as well.

Tip: while your meat is grilling, throw on some corn to grill to add as a side or to your salad. Cut a lemon in half and add that to the grill too, until you see char marks. The juice from grilled lemon is incredible and will add great depth to your salad!
