Lemon Garlic Marinade

Lemon Garlic Marinade

Ingredients

  • 20 garlic cloves peeled
  • 2-1/4 cups extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. dried oregano
  • 3 lbs flank steak

In a saucepan over low heat, cook the garlic and 1-1/2 cups of the olive oil until garlic is tender and golden brown, about 35-40 minutes. Strain the garlic and reserve the oil for another use.

In a small bowl, make a paste by mashing the garlic along with 1-1/2 tablespoons salt and 1-1/2 tablespoons black pepper and rub the paste all over the flank steaks. Then whisk the lemon juice, oregano, and the remaining olive oil together and pour over the steak. Let marinate for at least 1 hour.

Turn on your grill. Once the grill is hot, grill the steaks to your liking, depending on how thick it is and what temperature you prefer. Typically, I find 3 minutes a side is perfect.
