Sesame Marinated Flank Steak

Sesame Marinated Flank Steak

Juicy flank steak is marinated in authentic Asian soy and sesame flavors then broiled quickly to perfection in 15 minutes or less.


  • 24-32 oz. flank steak
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup lite soy sauce
  • ¼ cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1 ½ Tbsp ginger puree
  • ¼ cup diced green onion


  1. Mix together all ingredients to create a marinade. Place the flank steak in a zip-top bag or in a dish with high sides, then pour the marinade over the flank steak. Seal the zip-top bag (or cover the dish) and allow the steaks to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  2. Preheat the broiler or grill to medium-high heat.
  3. Remove steak from marinade. For best results, let the steak rest at room temperature for 30-45 minutes before cooking.
  4. Broil or grill on medium-high to the desired internal temperature: 125°F for rare (about 4-7 minutes per side), 135°F for medium-rare (about 5-8 minutes per side), 145°F for medium (about 6-9 minutes per side), or 155°F for medium-well (about 7-10 minutes per side). Use a meat thermometer to determine the internal temperature of the steak.
  5. Remove from heat and let the steak rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing thinly, against the grain, at a 45° angle.
