SOAKED or SEASONED In a shallow dish, combine vinegar, lime and lemon juices, olive oil, garlic, herbs and salt and pepper to taste; reserve a ¼ of the mixture. Add flank steak and flip to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours. Remove steak from marinade and let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes; discard marinade. Spray grill grate with cooking spray and preheat to medium. Place steak on grill, close the lid and cook for 8 to 10 minutes each side or until desired doneness is reached. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut meat across the grain into slices. Drizzle with remaining vinegar mixture and serve.

MARINADES, THERE ARE FANS OF THE FLAVOR BATH AND SUPPORTERS OF THE SPICY CRUST. BUT WHO REALLY WINS THIS FIGHT? WE ALL DO. MARINATED FLANK STEAK 1 ⁄ 3 cup Big Y cider vinegar – juice of 3 limes and 1 lemon ¾ cup World Classics Trading Co. olive oil 4 garlic cloves, minced 1 Tbsp. each fresh cilantro, parsley and oregano, finely chopped – Big Y salt and fresh ground pepper to taste 3 lb. All Natural Angus Beef ank steak – nonstick cooking spray PREP: 25 MIN. | MARINATE: 4-6 HR. COOK: 16-20 MIN. | SERVES: 10 RUBS MARINADES What's in a rub? A blend of spices, herbs, salt and/ or sugar that you pat onto meat. It should impart intense flavor, seal in juices and result in a nice, crispy crust. The perfect rub will be a well-blended combo of flavor and color. Unlike marinades, a rub can be added to your meat just before you toss it on the grill, but if you do have a little extra time, letting the flavors settle in never hurts. Make your own by starting with a base of salt (and a bit of sugar), then play with some spices until you hit the sweet spot: What's in a marinade? A mix of fat, acid and seasonings that, done right, will infuse your meat with flavor while also tenderizing it and helping it stay juicy. You'll want a ratio of 3 parts fat to 1 part acid. You need a bit of time to properly marinate — anywhere from 2 hours to up to 24 hours, depending on your meat — so this isn't a good last-minute option. Looking to make your own marinade?
