Steak on a Stick (Marinated Flank Steak)

I got this recipe from a friend years ago.  Cindy told me back then that my girls would like it, and I just got around to making it.  They did love it.  They actually devoured it.  Jenna is our pickiest one - kind of a meat and bread girl.  She loved it.  I can't tell you how many she "enjoyed".   I served these with roasted potatoes and broccoli.  Jenna thought I should have served them with rice and rolls. :)

 My hubby thought the slicing was  probably the hardest part.  He did the slices as thin as he could without having them fall apart.  He thought the slices were probably a little bigger than 1/4 inch.  Since we are in the middle of winter in Omaha, I just broiled these 3 minutes on each side and they were perfect.

The pictures aren't great.  We tried several different options but this steak wasn't overly photogenic.

Steak on a Stick (Marinated Flank Steak)

1 1/2 lb. flank steak or London broil
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil (optional)
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp molasses
2 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Cut steak on diagonal in 1/4 inch slices and place in a sealable bag.  Mix remaining ingredients in bowl, then pour into bag.  Seal the bag with no air pockets, shake and marinate in refrigerator for at least 4 hours. (can freeze until ready to use)  Skewer the meat ribbon style on a skewer.  Broil or grill meat, about 3 minutes on each side.  OR..... you could marinate the whole steak and grill.  Slice thin to serve.

to make the meat easier to cut, freeze it for about a half an hour first. These look awesome! anne
