  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup canola oil or any neutral flavored oil
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger grated* see note
  • 2 tbsp garlic minced
  • 3 lbs flank steak approximately 2 medium


  • Combine all the marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Place flank steak in a zipper bag and pour the marinade on top, ensuring it is thoroughly covered. Marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • 30 minutes before grilling, place flank steak on counter (it does not need to be room temperature, but it shouldn't be straight from the fridge).
  • Bring grill to medium heat for at least 10 minutes. Once the grill is hot place the flank steak directly over the flame. Allow to cook for 10 minutes before flipping. After flipping allow to cook for approximately 10 more minutes. If at any point it begins to burn move to a cooler spot on the grill, close the lid, and allow to finish cooking. Pull meat off the grill once the internal temperature of the meat has reached your preferred doneness level.
  • Allow the meat to rest for 10 minutes. Thinly slice the meat across the grain. See picture in post for details.


Tips & Tricks
  • Marinate overnight for the best flavor.
  • Make sure your fire isn’t too hot. The outside will burn before the inside is ready.
  • Thinly slice against the grain.
