Epicurious – [Not so] Grilled Marinated Sirloin Flap Steaks

Epicurious – [Not so] Grilled Marinated Sirloin Flap Steaks

Why the “not so?” Well I was too lazy to grill the steaks so I broiled them instead. I read a few recipes for flap steaks and they all started off pretty similarly. Someone was perusing the meat aisle and saw this meat called flap meat. What. So I was looking for skirt steak in Costco, and my mom and I stumbled on this beef loin flap meat. It sounded questionable, but with trusty Google I figured it was similar to flank steak. Good enough for me! 

We got 2 pounds to test it out, and kinda followed the recipe and broiled the meat instead of grilling. Successful experiment!

What you’ll need

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup (I used honey instead)
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 pounds sirloin flap steaks

What to do

  1. Blend soy sauce, vinegar, syrup, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a blender until smooth. (I just mixed everything in the tupperware…as you can see…)
  2. Toss steaks with mixture. Marinate at room temperature about 15 minutes.
  3. When you want to consume the meat, turn your oven on broil or set to 500 degrees F.
  4. I placed the meat on a rack on a baking sheet. Broil for 4 minutes.
  5. Take the pan out and FLIP THE MEAT! Broil for another 4 minutes. (The 4 minute intervals produced a medium rare, you can adjust the time to your meat doneness preference! I wouldn’t go too crazy…500 degrees can do some damage)
  6. Take the meat out and let the deliciousness rest for a few minutes. CONSUME!
