Ingredients

  • 4 Flat Iron, Top Sirloin, Tenderloin or Strip Steaks

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Marinade

  • ½ cup molasses

  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil

  • 2 Tbsp. coarsely ground black pepper

  • 2 Tbsp. minced garlic

  • 2 tsp. finely grated fresh ginger

  • 2 tsp. finely chopped fresh thyme

  • 2 tsp. dried red pepper flakes

Preparation

  1. Whisk together marinade ingredients. Pour into zip-top bag containing steaks. Seal tightly and flip a few times to evenly distribute marinade. Set in refrigerator to marinate for 30 minutes-2 hours, flipping bag occasionally.

  2. Preheat gas or charcoal grill to 400°F.

  3. Remove steaks and discard marinade. Season with salt and more pepper to taste.

  4. Place steaks on oiled grates and grill for approximately 7-9 minutes on one side, or until moisture starts to pool on the top and beef releases easily from grates with tongs. Flip once, grilling on the other side for 6-8 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 135°F with meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of steak.

  5. Transfer steaks to platter and let rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing against the grain.
