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 don’t 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 recipe has a few steps but is easy to make and because of the marinade, you can make it in the morning before the day gets hectic and then pull it out of the refrigerator when you’re ready to grill.
