The Best Marinade for Flank Steak (or anything!)

Who doesn't love having a great marinade recipe in your hip pocket?!  Especially during prime grillin' season!  This recipe is perfect for flank steak (a tough cut of beef which needs some help to tenderize and add in delicious flavor) but works just as well on any type of meat you'd like to serve up this summer....and let's not kid ourselves, my family grills year-round!

3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1/2 a small onion, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons ginger

Place all ingredients in a blender and let 'er go until smooth.  Play around with different oils and vinegars depending on what you have on hand.  Don't worry about whole or ground cloves and's all gonna get blended up no matter what!

Marinate desired meat or poultry 24-48 hours in the refrigerator (and yes, you need that time for a flank steak!).  Let the meat rest on the counter for 30 minutes to an hour before grilling (or broiling).  Baste with marinade during grilling/broiling until done to your likeness!
