A Christmas Time Recipe

Well, I did promise to post some holiday recipes and I am true to my word. This one in particular was one that my dad always made for the family on Christmas and I remember him slicing the meat and serving it with pride. He loved this recipe and I do too. This one does take a little longer because you have to marinate the meat for 2-3 days, depending on how long you want too. I usually do it for 3 days, it seems to really bring out the flavor. We are having this Christmas night with the whole family and I am looking forward to it.

                                                    Marinated Flank Steak

2-3 Flank steaks (depending on the size of your family)

1/2 cup of canola or olive oil

1/4 cup of soy sauce

1/2 cup of lemon juice

1/2 tsp of oregano

1/2 cup of honey

2 clove garlic

4 tbls of Worcestershire

black pepper to taste

I always double the ingredients and then mix it all together and lay the meat flat in a casserole dish and pour the mixture on top and keep in the refrigerator. Turn the meat every 12 hours. Once you are ready to cook it, you broil the meat for about 10 minutes on each side. When slicing, you slice it very thin and to the side not straight up and down. It should be red still in the middle, otherwise it will be too tough.

I serve this with either mashed potatoes and your favorite gravy (I like hunter's gravy with this) or baked potato. What ever veggie you prefer and rolls. This is also a nice meal any time of the year.

If you try this, let me know what you think! Enjoy! I will do my famous press cookie recipe next time.

Love ya, Lisa


  1. We have a similar recipe, and its very YUMMY! Jarrod's family have the tradition of having Seafood on Christmas Eve. Haven't done it for a while, but my Family Back home in Canada have Ham Roast,Fresh Pineapple and various desserts on Christmas Eve.

  2. yeah, the Ham is tradition in a lot of families and once in a while Brandie make us a yummy Ham, but we decided to have this instead. I do prefer it to the Ham.
