We make this super-easy, super-tasty dish all year long. The bold combination of soy sauce, balsamic, and maple syrup works its magic on the meat quickly, so it only needs to marinate for as long as it takes to get your grill fired up. In the fall and winter, we pair this steak with maple-sweetened butternut squash. Come summer, it’s a natural with a tomato salad and corn on the cob.
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons basalmic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 lb sirloin flap steaks
  • Blend soy sauce, vinegar, syrup, garlic, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper in a blender until smooth. Toss steaks with mixture. Marinate at room temperature about 15 minutes.
  • Prepare a grill for direct-heat cooking over hot charcoal (high heat for gas); see “Grilling Procedure.”
  • Discard marinade and pat steaks dry.
  • Oil grill rack, then grill steaks, covered only if using a gas grill, turning occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes total for medium-rare. Let rest on a plate, uncovered, 10 minutes.
