Lemon Herb Steak

Our family loves to grill, and not just in the summertime. It's a year-round cooking method for us. I like to have meats marinated and ready to throw on the grill as soon as we get home from work. This a great recipe to use if you are stocking your freezer.

1 1/2 lbs Beef flank steak or sirloin steak
1 t. grated lemon peel
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 T sugar
2 T soy sauce
1/2 t. oregano
1/8 t. pepper

Score meat in 1-inch intervals across steak. Place meat in freezer bag.

Stir together lemon peel, lemon juice, sugar, soy sauce, oregano, and pepper. Pour marinade over meat and close bag. Freeze.

On serving day, thaw and remove steak. Place on grill and cook on medium heat. Turn once during cooking and brush with marinade (always boil marinade 2-3 minutes after removing meat and prior to basting grilled steak).

To serve, meat can be thinly sliced across the grain or served in larger pieces.
