Texas Grilled Flank Steaks

Read how to tenderize flank steak

This is a spicy version of traditional grilled steak recipe, with lots of flavor. Flank steak is sometimes tough, but the grilling marinade included in the recipe will help tenderize it. If you prefer, you can use sirloin steaks for this Southwestern recipe, too. The sirloin steaks won’t need to marinate for as long as flank steaks would.

Holle’s Texas Grilled Flank Steaks

What you’ll need:

  • 4 flanks steaks or sirloin steaks, about one inch thick
  • Commercial meat tenderizer
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


Directions: Pierce steaks on both sides with a fork and rub in meat tenderizer.

Mix remaining ingredients together for the grilling marinade. Marinate steaks in the liquid for several hours. The tougher the cut, the longer the steaks should marinate.

Place steaks on medium-hot grill and cook until desired doneness.

Serve with my Southwestern Salsa on the side. You can find that recipe in this section.
