I love how easy it is to whip together a homemade marinade. And I love how flank steak takes in and holds the marinade flavor. And I love that when you freeze the meat in the marinade, it marinates as it thaws before cooking. And that’s what makes this a winner – the extra long marinade time makes for a delicious piece of steak!
