Can you imagine flank steak that melts in your mouth? And flavors that explode in your mouth? Well here is a recipe that explodes with flavor and melts in your mouth. The secret? Marinating the meat all day! Now let’s go off to the kitchen!

Ingredients
1 1/2 – 2#’s of flank steak
3 heaping soup spoon of hoisin sauce
6 capfuls of cooking sherry
1/4 cup of low sodium soy sauce
2 green onions, sliced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
3 1/4″ thick pieces of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
wooden skewers – about 2 dozen

First, lay out the flank steak on your cutting board.

Lay out the flank steak

Slice this across the grain in strips about 1/4-1/2 inch thick.

Cut the flank steak across the grain

Place the meat in a ziplock bag.

Next, get your ingredients for the marinade ready.

Marinade ingredients

Combine the hoisin sauce, sherry, soy sauce, green onions, minced garlic and ginger in a bowl. The hoisin is a bit sticky so stir this up well as it will stick to the sides of the bowl.

Marinade

Pour this mixture into the bag of meat, zip the bag and then shake the bag really well to coat the meat. Set this in your refrigerator and turn the bag a few times during the day.

One half hour before you are ready to cook, place the skewers in a pan of water to soak. You do this so that they do not burn up on the grill. Also, take the meat out of the refrigerator. After the half hour, thread the meat on the skewers.

Skewer the meat

Next get your grill ready. Because the meat is thinly sliced these will cook rather fast. Once the grill is nice and hot, start adding your skewers

Set the skewers on the grill

Turn the skewers to cook evenly

Turn the skewers

until they are done!

Serve these with rice, or potatoes, and don’t forget a fresh steamed vegetable!

Dinner is served!

And, dinner is served! One note: This dish does not require any salt. So taste this before getting that shaker out! Enjoy!
