Island Teriyaki Grilled Flat Iron Steak
Serves: 4
  • ½ cup soy sauce (reduced sodium soy sauce can be used)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • Several grinds of fresh ground black pepper
  • 1-1/2 lb flat iron steak
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons chopped green onions, optional as a garnish
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, optional as a garnish
  1. Whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, olive oil, ginger, garlic and pepper. Pour over flat iron steak, turning several times. Cover and refrigerate preferably for 24 hours but at least for 12, turning several times while marinating.
  2. Preheat grill to medium heat; remove steak from marinade, discarding marinade. Grill 5 minutes, then turn and cook until desired doneness is reached, about 5 to 7 minutes longer for medium rare.
  3. Remove from grill and allow steak to sit for 10 minutes (“rest” to allow juices to settle) before thinly slicing.
  4. As an option, sprinkle with chopped green onions and sesame seeds.
