Fast Fire Flank Steak

This recipe is a crowd pleaser that should be made at least a day in advance so it can marinate.  Make enough to have leftovers... they are perfect for making sandwiches with.
If you don't have a container to marinate, use a large Ziplock bag to place the meat in to marinate. I find the longer it marinates, the better.
Be sure to flip the meat a few times a day to make sure every inch of it gets marinated.
I also think it tastes better when you really score the meat on both sides with a knife. This allows the marinade to get deep into the meat.
