Easy Grilling: Jamaican Spiced Flank Steak

July 21, 2011

I do a lot of grilling in the summer, but honestly, I am grilling year-round. Every year, I work on so many grilling recipe projects for food clients, magazines and cookbooks, and my kids love almost anything that is cooked on the grill. Flank steak is always on the top of my list, and I love this Jamaican Flank Steak recipe. The marinade is really fabulous, made with orange juice, lime juice, fresh ginger, brown sugar, pepper and cinnamon. One of my friends tried it, and she told me she only cooks flank steak this way now. Serve this with a tossed salad, fresh fruit or grilled asparagus, and dinner is fresh, healthy and simple.

Jamaican Spiced Flank Steak

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons peeled, grated ginger-root
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 (2-pound) flank steak
1. For the marinade, in a medium bowl combine orange juice, lime juice, ginger, brown sugar, salt, pepper and cinnamon. Place steak in a large resealable plastic bag; pour marinade over steak. Seal bag; refrigerate 2 hours to 8 hours, turning occasionally.

2. Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium-high (350°F to 400°F). Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grill. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes per side or to desired doneness. Remove from grill; let stand 10 minutes. Cut diagonally against the grain into thin slices, and serve.

Using citrus and cinnamon sounds really delish on this. This goes on our weekend lake menu this weekend.

I love citrus flavors with steak! The sharpness really cuts the rich beef flavor. I really love cold steak sandwiches the next day. Your dish looks fantastic!
