Haaaaaaaaaaaaappy Sunday Guys and Dolls! How are things in your neck of the woods? 
Things here are awesome, like serious awesome sauce! My granddaughter (aka G-baby) is growing like crazy, and seems to do something cute every single day. Just when I think she can’t get any cuter she proves me wrong….again……and again! Sorry if I am gushing, but I just can’t seem to help it!!
You know what else is awesome sauce? You guessed it, this damn steak! Like holy shizzz awesome gang! It’s marinade is sooooo simple, but it adds such a wonderful flavor to plain old boring flank steak .
Sorry flank steak, no insult meant, but come on now, ya know you are never gonna be a fillet! 

However, all is not lost, if you dress up with something like this marinade? Well now, that is a whole different story. You might just end up being the belle of the ball.
Don’t you talk to your food? 
It is pretty much like talking to your family.
It doesn’t really listen. 
But the upside is that it doesn’t talk back

OK, ahem, I will get serious now, sort of, well as serious as I can possibly be.
We have been grilling so much, for so long, I have actually become a bit bored with it.
Wait? Whut did I say?
Ssshhhhh you didn’t hear that. 
What I meant to say is “I have been working on new and exciting grilling ideas”. *whew*
If certain people heard me say that, I wouldn’t be eating much around here!
My newest fave is Asian flavors. Just in the last couple of weeks we have been noshing on this deelish Asian Rainbow Noodle Salad, and these fabulous Thai Style Ribs, and we have yet to get tired of them! So you know when I found out that the lovely Amy from Kimchi Mom was hosting this weeks Sunday Supper, and the theme was Asian cuisine? Well I was one happy camper!
So, this steak, ya back to the main reason you are here. 
This is a suuuuuuper simple marinade, that doesn’t use any fancy dancy stuff. Fish sauce is available at most local stores now in the Asian isle, and that is the most “gourmet” item on the list. And, please please please get the fish sauce!! Even if you think it is weird, which I did the first time I smelled it , buttttttttttt it adds a certain sumthin sumthin that no other ingredient can add. It is just an underlying funkiness (and I mean that in a very good way) that takes this marinade over the top. 
If you ab. so. lutely. can’t bring yourself to use it, or you can’t find it at your store, you can sub Worcestershire sauce. It won’t be the same, but it will still be really good.
So, go forth my fine foodies. Get thee to the supermarket and buy some funky fish sauce so you can grill up this fantabulous Asian style grub!!

Planning on making one of my recipes? Nothing would make me happier! Take a photo and share it on Instagram using the hashtag #BobbisKozyKtchn I would love to see what you made.

  1. Heck yes! This looks so so soooo good!

  2. What a great recipe!

  3. That marinade sounds fantastic!
    …and yes, I talk to my food…

  4. Fish sauce is a staple in my fridge! Ihave flank steaks set aside in the freezer for company nexyt week—this just may be the recipe I use 🙂

  5. Love the way you marinated and amp'd up the flavor of flank steak. And you grilled it perfectly too.

  6. That steak is cooked perfectly. My mouth is watering here.

  7. I'm with you on the fish sauce! We just bought our first bottle, and after smelling it I wondered "Why did I just buy this!" …But, now I'm addicted. Your steak looks beautiful!

  8. Wowee!! Love the flavours here!

  9. I had a flank steak in the freezer that I was debating what to do with, and so I ended up using your recipe last night – it was delicious, we all enjoyed it (and my husband will be enjoying a bit more today as leftovers lunch, mixed in with the Asian slaw I made to go with it 🙂 ). Thanks for the recipe!

  10. The recipe ingredients don't list Worcestershire Sauce, but in the recipe instructions it is there? How much should be used?

  11. I am sorry for the mix up Melanie! It should have ed soy sauce. I have fixed it now 🙂
