Review This Recipe
It is difficult to make flank steak taste bad, but the marinade in this recipe made it taste awesome! I think I will probably use the marinade for other steak in the future. I did subsitute half of the soy sauce with teriyaki sauce since I didn't have enough soy sauce. It was still fairly salty, so if you don't like salt you might want to make some changes. I will definitely make this again.
