Flat Iron Steak Asian Marinade Recipe

The FLAT IRON is one of the juiciest and flavourful steaks you can quickly cook or grill. As its name suggests, the steak is flat and not too thick. This makes the flat iron steak ideal for home cooks who want to cook a fast weeknight meal whether by itself or cut into thin strips for salads or tacos. But if you would like to do something a little special with it – here is an a tasty Asian-inspired marinade to try.


½ cup Soy Sauce
½ cup Sherry
¼ cup Honey
2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
2 Tablespoons (heaping) Minced Ginger
2 Tablespoons (3-5 cloves) Minced Garlic
teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
Garnish: 2 Tablespoons Roasted Sesame Seeds and 2 Spring Onions, slivered.


    Gather all ingredients together – soy sauce, sherry, honey, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, and flat iron steak.

    Whisk the ingredients in a bowl. Place the steaks and marinade in a ziplock bag and chill in the refrigerator for 3-6 hours. Grill steaks on high heat for 4 minutes on each side for medium rare steaks. Allow steaks to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Sprinkle roasted sesame seeds and spring onion slivers on top to garnish.
