Juicy 5-Ingredient Marinated Flank Steak Recipe Cooks In 10 Minutes

Our favorite flank steak recipe is so easy and kids even love it. With just five simple ingredients, this marinated flank steak recipe is on the table fast!

Before you head out the door for the office or start your day, put the soy sauce and equal parts of white wine (buy the cheap stuff!) into a plastic zipper bag or shallow dish along with the ginger and garlic. Add the steak, cover and pop it into the refrigerator to marinate all day. If you only have a few hours, that's fine. But the longer it marinates, the more flavor you'll get out of the marinade ingredients. That evening, grill or broil the steak to your desired doneness. Mine takes about 10 minutes total. 

Steak night could not be any easier, juicier or flavorful! Add fresh vegetable and mashed potatoes for an easy, delicious dinner.

Recipe Notes

  • Can't get outside to grill it? Cook your flank steak in a grill pan or cast iron skillet on the stovetop.
  • Try this recipe with sirloin steak, round steak, London broil or hanger steak.
  • To make this recipe gluten-free, use gluten-free soy sauce or tamari.

Here's how to make it:

  1. In the morning, combine 2 to 3 cups soy sauce and equal parts white wine. Add the ginger and garlic. 
  2. Marinate the steak flat and covered 6 to 12 hours in the fridge. Flip it over during the day or if you know you can’t, just increase the liquid ingredients in equal parts so that the whole steak is covered. 
  3. Grill or broil to your liking.

Christie Gosch
Yum! Do you score the steak before marinating? I usually do on both sides, about an inch apart to increase tenderness but if you don't and it is still good I'd be happy to skip that direction!
Donna John
Yum! Love flank steak. I wouldn't think scoring it would hurt anything, Christie Gosch . Score away! Jan Mostrom

Thanks For Sharing....

This recipe looks amazing and I will be making it on Monday on the Blackstone griddle. I am tempted to add 1/2 cup of olive oil to the marinade just because every marinade I make has this. Does anyone have an opinion on this?
Jan Mostrom
Mr-John We never added oil and never felt it needed it. Once in a while if the steak is huge we added more soy or wine if needed. The original recipe called for honey but we've never added and never wanted to. After 30 years it remains one of the family favorites. It's perfect if you can marinate all day but it gets too salty if you marinate overnight! LMK how it turns out! (We always make it with this cabbage salad. (food: Quick & Easy Asian-Inspired Ramen Cabbage Salad Recipe Is a Family Fan Favorite)
John Eckels
I made it exactly as stated and it was amazing. I did emulsify the marinade in the blender but left half the garlic and ginger in it chunky state. I also made the Ramen Cabbage Salad and it too was amazing! Thank you so much for the recipes and answering my questions.
Jan Mostrom
Mr-John I'm so happy to hear that it was a success! That makes me very happy thinking of your friends and family enjoying a meal we love! I made an amazing crustless spanakopita quiche tonight that I will post soon and you might want to try. We loved it!
