Ingredients

FOR THE MARINADE —

FOR THE SAUCE —

FOR THE SPICE MIX —

Instructions

Combine cola, pineapple juice, vinegar, whiskey, brown sugar, garlic, gingerroot, and Worcestershire in a resealable plastic bag. Score steak, add to bag, seal, and chill at least 2 hours. Remove steak from bag, reserving marinade for sauce. Lightly pat steak dry.

Boil reserved marinade, ketchup, onion, and jalapeño in a saucepan for 30 minutes, or until thick; strain.

Preheat grill to high.

Combine paprika, thyme, salt, granulated garlic, cayenne, and black pepper for spice mix; rub onto steak. Grill steak, covered, about 6 minutes; flip and baste with sauce. Grill 5 minutes, then flip and baste again. Cook steak 1 minute more for medium-rare meat; allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing. Check out our video for Slicing Flank Steak.

Using just the tip of a knife, make shallow cuts in a diamond pattern across the grain of the meat.

Basting merges the flavors of the sauce and the spice mix, and gives the steak an appetizing glaze.
