Taste of the Islands Steak

A few months ago, I participated in a meal prep with some friends. The host had all of the ingredients for numerous dishes, and we all prepared our meals for our families and placed them in our freezers once we returned home. This is one of those recipes. It was really good! I had never had flank steak before, but it was very tasty. The second time I prepared this I used NY Strip steaks. The flavor was just as good. It is a sweet and spicy flavor. We don't eat a lot of red meat around here, so this must be good for me to have tried it again!

Taste of the Islands Flank Steak
adapted from a friend's recipe

½ cup soy sauce
½ cup pineapple juice
1 tsp minced garlic
¼ cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp sesame oil (I have substituted olive oil before.)
1 Tbsp jerk seasoning

Add all ingredients to a gallon sized Ziploc bag with flank steak or any cut of steak you choose.
Zip bag and squeeze well to mix ingredients. Marinate at least 4 hours, longer for better flavor. You could also freeze this (marinade and meat in bag) and cook at a later date. I have done this, and the flavor is phenomenal!

After marinating, remove steak from marinade. Either discard marinade, or cook on stove top, bringing to a boil and use to baste meat with sauce. Grill meat over medium-high heat 5-8 minutes per side or to desired doneness, or broil 5-8 minutes each side. Let steak stand for a few minutes. Slice diagonally across grain. If using regular steaks and not flank steak, cooking times may vary. Cook until the meat is your desired tenderness.
