Spicy Asian Marinated Flank Steak

When it comes to experimenting with recipes, Marie Meyer encourages friends and family to be fearless. "Some of the things I come up with are not that good," she says. But Meyer found a winner with her spicy Asian marinade. An avid griller, Meyer wanted to create a marinade made with accessible ingredients and versatile enough to apply to a variety of meats. She also uses it with pork tenderloin and cuts of chicken.
