The Grilled Texas-Style Flank Steak That Will Leave Them Asking For More

It’s time for some grilling and what better to grill than a crowd-pleasing (or family-pleasing) Grilled Texas-Style Flank Steak.

It’s so nice to grill when the weather is hot and you don’t want to turn your oven on and heat up the house but there’s no need to limit yourself to burgers and hot dogs, although they are so much better when grilled, instead treat your family to a delicious marinated and grilled Texas-style flank steak.  This delicious BBQ recipe has a few steps but is easy to make and because of the marinade, you can prepare it in the morning before the day gets hectic and then pull it out of the refrigerator when you’re ready to grill. 

It’s the perfect main course to serve for a crowd so fire up the grill or any outdoor barbecue and start cooking!

Isn't food so much better when it is done on the grill? One of my favorite parts of summer. Last year my mom made a prime rib on the charcoal grill and it was the most delicious thing I've ever tasted! I will have to give this marinade a try.
