New Flank Steak - UPDATED

Deirdre writing:

I get updates from GE Appliances based on several purchases during our kitchen remodel. I used to just delete them until I discovered their recipe section. These are SERIOUSLY amazing recipes, so fabulous that I actually sent the people who run the recipes an email of gratitude. To my surprise, I received a response! All recipes are thoroughly tested before publication. Now, that's a job I want!

Here is a new recipe for flank steak. Though we haven't made it yet, I suspect that we will replace the sugar with Splenda.

Marinated Flank Steak Recipe
Yield: 4-6 Servings

1 large flank steak
2 tablespoons sherry
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
1-teaspoon ground cinnamon
1-teaspoon salt

1. Slightly score a flank steak diagonally on both sides with the tip of a knife.
2. Mix the other 5 ingredients and let flank steak marinate in remaining ingredients in a zippered bag or large casserole dish for several hours.
3. Grill for several minutes on each side, until desired doneness.
4. Slice in thin slices on the diagonal.

COOK'S NOTES - Paul made this Saturday night and I really wondered about cinnamon and beef. Whoa, it was good but it was missing something. Paul used Splenda instead of sugar and the next time we make it, we will swap out Splenda with brown sugar. I can just tell you that it works and works well.
