I had such a fun opportunity this spring to go to Des Moines and New York and help demonstrate this amazing new product.  There are so many different hacks and uses for this plastic wrap.  One of my favorites was to use it to cover surfaces before working with raw meat.  I use this hack every single time that I am using raw meat in the kitchen and need to protect the surface.  This makes for great clean up as well.  I used the hack for this recipe and then it was so great for wrapping it up and sealing in the marinade.  Today, I am going to show you how to make this delicious flank steak and use this hack in the kitchen all of the time for yourself!

How do you make Brown Sugar Garlic Flank Steak?

  • Prepare your marinade by mixing together the garlic, brown sugar, olive oil, Worcestershire, soy sauce, dijon, green onions and salt.
  • On a clean surface lay out two large pieces of Reynolds Kitchens Quick Cut plastic wrap slide by side, with 2 inches overlapping. This creates and extra large rectangle.
  • Pat steak dry using a paper towel and set in center of prepared plastic wrap surface. Pour marinade mixture over the steak and pull the sides of the plastic together until steak and marinade are tightly sealed. If needed use an extra piece of plastic wrap to seal up any loose ends. Set in refrigerated for 4 hours or up to overnight.
  • Preheat grill to high heat and remove plastic and set prepared steak directly on grill. Allow to cook without turning for 3 minutes. Flip and cook other side for another 3 minutes. Continue flipping back and forth until steak reaches desired doneness. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

What temperature do you cook flank steak on the grill?

Medium Rare takes about 6 minutes on the grill turning only once.  It is 130-135 degrees on an instant read thermometer.

What is a good substitute for flank steak?

Skirt steak or flat iron steak is a good substitute.  You can also use this marinade with your favorite cut of steak.

I especially love this hack because it seals in that marinade and keeps the flavor inside.  You wrap up the meat tightly and as soon as it has had time to marinate, you simple throw the wrap away.  This makes clean up a cinch.

Since school is back in session and we need dinner on the table quick, I love that flank steak only takes about 6 minutes on the grill.  It is on the dinner table in no time and all.  And everyone devoured it!  My kids are steak levels and we sure love this recipe!

What side dishes can I serve with flank steak?

  • Roasted Parmesan Potatoes
  • Asparagus
  • Baked Potatoes
  • Green Beans
  • Avocado Tomato Salad
  • Scalloped Potatoes 

What other hacks can I do with plastic wrap?

  • Use the plastic wrap to cover your surface and roll out dough.
  • Cover your stand mixer with plastic wrap to keep the dough and flour within the bowl.
  • Use it to prevent freezer burn.  Cover the ice cream and then put the lid on top to create a seal.
  • Put it over your iPad, iPhone or cook book to protect the surface while in the kitchen.
  • Speed up the ripening process with avocados, or wrap the end of bananas in plastic wrap to slow down the rising process.
  • Create piping bags with the plastic wrap and have multiple colors of frosting in your piping bag.
