Grilled Asian-Inspired Flat Iron Steak Recipe: It's Steak Night

Flat iron steak is an often overlooked cut of beef. If you like flank steak, hanger steak or skirt steak, you need to give flat iron steak a try. This flat iron steak recipe is marinated in an Asian-inspired marinade and then quickly grilled. This steak recipe has an awesome flavor!

I marinated my steak for about six hours, turning it over every so often. If you want to cook two steaks, simply double the marinade ingredients. Be sure to slice this steak against the grain when serving. Serve with your favorite side dishes. It would be delicious sliced and served on a bed of fried rice.
