Rich, lean bison meat takes to the juniper-infused marinade in this easy flank steak recipe. Look for juniper berries in well-stocked supermarkets. If you can't find bison, beef flank steak is an ideal substitute. Source: EatingWell Magazine, July/August 2015

Instructions Checklist
  • To marinate steak: Combine olive oil, vinegar, sesame oil, lemon juice, tamari, garlic, juniper berries, honey, crushed red pepper and salt in a large sealable plastic bag. Add steak and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 1 day.

  • To grill steak: Preheat grill to medium-high.

  • Remove steak from the marinade about 30 minutes before you're ready to grill. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the steak, turning once, until desired doneness, 3 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare, depending on thickness. Let rest on a clean cutting board for 5 minutes before thinly slicing against the grain.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Marinate steak (Step 1) for up to 1 day.

Oiling a grill rack before you grill helps prevent foods from sticking. Once the grill is heated, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)

Made this but for about 1.5 lbs chicken. I let it marinade for maybe 20 minutes in a bowl and grilled it. Amazing! Kids couldn't get enough of it. I will definitely be making that again. Read More
