Flank Steak Recipe

My wife loves BBQ flank steak, and this recipe is a favorite of her and others. It's easy to prepare beforehand, and cooks up fast. I've seen this recipe pop up in a variety of places, so not sure of the source, but as with most recipes, I've tweeked it a bit for personal taste. In addition to the recipe/directions, be sure to check out the pictures at the bottom and tell me if that doesn't make you hungry (vegetarians should NOT scroll down! ;-). If you want a Surf and Turf Recipe, I recommend adding BBQ Shrimp on the Barbie.

   One 12-ounce jar orange marmalade
   1/2 cup red wine vinegar
   1 tablespoon chili powder
   2 tablespoons A-1 steak sauce
   1/2 cup ketchup
   2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
   1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
   3 pounds flank steak
   Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

   1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix 'em up well. 
   Set aside 1 cup of the marinade (see step #3 & #4) and add the flank steak 
   to the remaining marinade and coat well. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

   2. Preheat your BBQ grill so it's pretty darn hot. Toss the steak on the grill
   pour some of the marinade on top. After a minute to get a good sear, 
   flip the flank steak over and pour a bit more of the marinade on that side.
   Discard any leftover marinade (since it had been on raw meat).
   Turn the BBQ burner down to medium. Flip again after 4 more minutes, 
   and then remove after 4 additional minutes. This will be fairly rare;
   add a 1-2 minutes per side for more well done.

   3. While you let the flank steak sit for 5 minutes, microwave the cup 
   of marinade that you put aside earlier so it is good-n-hot. 

   4. Spread half of the marinade across the steak and cut again the grain
   into thin slices. Provide the last of the marinade for those that want
   a little extra on their pieces, and start chowing down!    ;-)
