Juicy Medium Grilled Flank Steak!!

Miso Marinated Flank Steaks


  • 2 tbsp white miso
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • 1 tbsp sake
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 2 flank steaks about 250g each


  1. Whisk all the marinade dressing together.
  2. Massage them into the flank steaks and let rest in the fridge covered for at least 30 minutes
  3. Heat up griddle or BBQ. Brush some oil on your steaks. When grill is heated, place the flank on top.
  4. How do you know when the steak is done? One way to tell is to poke it with your fingertips. While the steak is still raw, test it with your fingers; it will be quite squishy. That's what a very rare steak feels like. Touch the tip of your nose and that's what a very well done steak feels like. Otherwise use a good meat thermometer . Pull the steak off the grill at 125 to 130°F for rare, 140°F for medium rare, and 150°F for medium.
  5. Once the steak is cooked to your doneness, remove and cover with foil for at least 10 minutes.
  6. Before you cut the steak. Take time to notice the direction of the muscle fibers of the steak; this is called the grain of the meat. Flank steak is a very lean cut that will be tough and chewy unless you cut it in a way that breaks up the muscle fibers. So slice is up against the grains, at a diagonal angle if you like.
  7. Serve with vegetables or salad of choice. Or check out the Soy Sesame Dressing recipe for a delicious dressing!
