Soy Sauce Marinade

Hello again!

I'm not much of a meat-eater at this point in my life (eating for almost 4 years in a mostly-vegan/vegetarian co-op can do that to you!), but this soy-sauce marinade is the best I know. My family traditionally uses this with flank steak, but you can use a skirt steak or seafood or anything you'd like. The recipe for the marinade is originally from a friend of my grandmother’s, Lita Palumbo, though of course it has gone through much tweaking since then…

Here's your finished steak with lovely flavorful burnt bits on the outside, etc. Also great leftover with sandwiches!

Flank Steak with Soy Sauce Marinade
This recipe is more for the marinade than for how to cook steak.
-flank steak (or skirt steak, etc.)

-8-10 oz. soy sauce (or less, depending on how much meat you have)

-2-4 oz. orange juice
-1 1/2 t ground ginger

-1 1/2 t ground mustard

-1 t garlic powder, or 4 cloves chopped garlic

-3 T brown sugar

-4 whole cloves, or a dash of ground cloves
Mix marinade ingredients in a dish or gallon plastic zip bag, and marinate for at least 3 hours, or overnight. Broil or grill according to the amount of time your piece of meat needs.

And this is the finished meal the steak went with- roasted asparagus and squash casserole on the side.

I'll be bringing you the recipes for roasted asparagus and squash casserole in my next two posts! Stay tuned.

Savor it!
love, rue
