Marinated Flank Steak


1 kg flank steak
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup onion, minced
1/4 cup (60 ml) olive oil
1 lemon, juice of
1/2 cup (120 ml) red win
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon dried oregano
3 tablespoons dried parsley


  1. Lightly score flank steak on both sides against the grain of the meat. Mix all other ingredients in bowl to marinate meat.
  2. Place steak in bowl, turning to coat, cover and refrigerate until ready to cook. The longer the steak marinates the better; however, 30 minutes flavours the meat well.
  3. Preheat large frypan over medium-high heat until water drops "dance" when sprinkled in pan. Remove flank steak from marinade and place in hot pan, allowing some garlic and onion to remain on steak.
  4. Sear meat until it releases from first side, approximately 4 minutes. Turn; reduce heat, and sear second side, cover for 4 minutes for rare, or longer to desired doneness.
