Recipe: Flavorful Grilled Marinaded Flank Steak

  • Author: Jess Pryles
  • Prep Time: 24 hours
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 24 hours 25 minutes
  • Yield: serves 6 1x



1.5 lb of flank steak

3.5 oz chipotle pepper in adobo

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

4 garlic cloves

1/2 onion

1.5 cups orange juice

2 teaspoons kosher salt


  1. Prepare to marinade the steak 16-24 hours prior to cooking.
  2. Combine chipotle in adobo, vinegar, Worcestershire, garlic, onion, salt and orange juice in a blender. Pulse until combined.
  3. Place the flank steak in a sealable bag, then add the marinade, moving it around in the bag to ensure it’s well coated. Place in the fridge for 16-24 hours.
  4. Preheat a grill for direct cooking at medium heat, 350-400 degrees.
  5. Remove the flank steak from the bag and discard the marinade. Pat the surface of the steak somewhat dry to encourage browning on the grill.
  6. Place the steak on the grill, and cook using the “Just Keep Flipping” method – turning it over every 30-60 seconds over direct heat. This will allow the steak to cook thoroughly without burning.
  7. Cook until the center reads 135f on a meat thermometer (about 10-15 minutes total).
  8. Remove steak from grill and rest under foil for 7-10 minutes. Slice across the grain to serve.
