Oriental Steak Broil

This is one of my favorite Sunday dinners! And I don't use a whole 1 1/2 lbs of steak for my family. I just buy the 3 or so lb package from Sams or Costco and cut it into 3 chunks, then we can have it 3 different times.

Oriental Steak Broil
3 T lemon juice
1 T vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 T soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 anise seed or ground allspice
1 1/2 lbs flank steak

In 1-qt saucepan combine lemon juice, oil, garlic, soy sauce, salt, pepper, and anise seed. Bring to boil and stir 30 seconds. Pour hot marinade over steak and let marinate for 30 minutes or longer turning at least once. Then you can either broil the steak 3-5 minutes on each side or bbq it. Cut steak on the diagonal into 1/2 inch slices and serve.
** I always broil mine since we don't have a bbq but it's never been done after 3-5 minutes on each side... I usually end up doing almost 10 minutes per side. So just watch it and cook it till it looks done. It should still be pink when you cut into it but not bleeding red! Enjoy

I've never bought steak from Costco, is it good? Is it just one big chunk of steak and then you cut it? Or is it like steak chunks or stew meat that you see in the grocery store? I'll have to check it out.

OK, we shop at Sams but I think it's pretty much the same. They have great meat and all different kinds. So the flank steak is like 2 giant steaks. I think if you get it in the grocery store it's one giant steak, so this is just double that, but better price. And I cut a third off of both so that we can have this recipe 3 times.
Sams also has stew meat and it's way better then any stew meat I've bought at the grocery store, and again, big quantity so you can use it for a few meals!
If you have room in your freezer I would always buy my meat at Sams/Costco
