  • In a bowl mix together marinade.
  • Cover flank steak in the marinade and allow it to marinate for at least 30 minutes but no more than 8 hours.
  • When ready to cook, heat the grill to medium-high heat. Place the steak on the grill. Let it cook for 4-5 minutes, flip and cook for an additional 4-5 minutes.
  • Cook until you reach an internal temperature of 140 for a medium steak, 150 for well done.
  • Remove the steak from the grill, cover with foil and let the steak rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Slice the steak against the grain and serve alongside grilled veggies or on a salad.



  • Cilantro - Cilantro would be a great addition to this marinade if you like it!
  • Oil - You can use avocado or vegetable/canola oil in place of olive oil. We don't recommend vegetable oil because it doesn't give much flavor.
  • Citrus - You can use orange or lemon in place of limes
  • Marinade - You can use any marinade on flank steak. This Healthy Lemon Basil Vinaigrette would be delicious. Check out these 4 Healthy Salmon Marinades or 5 Healthy Chicken Marinades for other ideas!
  • Garlic - You can use dried garlic in place of fresh garlic. For 1.5 tablespoons fresh garlic use 2 teaspoons dried garlic.
