Flank Steak Dinner

Matt is definitely a meat and potatoes kind of guy, so when we have people over for dinner, he leaps at the chance to have steak and potatoes. Saturday night was no exception-- so I whipped up some flank steak, yummmm

What You Need:
1/2C Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1C Worcestershire Sauce
1C Soy Sauce
1/4C packed Brown Sugar
1/4teaspoon Salt
2teaspoons Garlic, minced
1/4teaspoons Onion Powder
1/4teaspoons Ground Ginger
2teaspoons Fresh Ginger, shredded
Flank Steak
Combine everything in a mixing bowl and whisk until incorporated. Pour marinade into plastic bag and add flank steak.Put in fridge over night, flipping over the next morning. Get it out of the fridge and bring it to room temperature before you cook it.There are two ways you can cook flank steak... on the grill or in the oven. Saturday, I chose the oven, since, of course, we live in an apartment and it's against fire code to even HAVE a grill. Oh well... the oven will do fine. For medium rare meat you will BROIL the steak for 7 minutes on one side, flip, and broil for another 6 minutes. Slice it thin.I just steamed some broccoli and mashed some potatoes to go with the steak. I also added some bacon to the potatoes. Can't go wrong with bacon

**notice all the space between each thing on my plate... I hate my food touching-- even at the expense of a good photograph.
