Add some pizzazz to your grilling with this easy, flavorful marinade that’s also good on chicken.


  • 1/2 cup light soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Flank steak, approximately 2 pounds


  1. Mix all of the marinade ingredients.
  2. Put meat into an oblong baking dish. Pour marinade over flank steak, coating both sides. Refrigerate for approximately 4 hours, turning often.
  3. Grill (preferably on grill mat) on medium heat for approximately 15 minutes, until desired doneness (pink center is recommended). Flip midway through cooking.
  4. Cut into 1-inch slices across the grain of meat.
  5. Make it a meal by roasting some vegetables alongside the steak.  Enjoy!


Substitute a 5-ounce chicken breast for the steak to reduce calories to 300 and fat to 20 grams.
