Basil-Marinated Flank Steak
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon each pepper and granulated sugar
1 flank steak (about 1 1/2 lb)
1 salt

In large shallow glass dish, whisk together oil, vinegar, garlic, basil, mustard, pepper and sugar; add steak, turning to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours, turning occasionally. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Reserving marinade, place steak on greased grill over medium-high heat; grill, brushing occasionally with marinade, for 5 to 7 minutes per side for medium-rare or to be desired doneness. Transfer to cutting board; tent with foil and let stand for 5 minutes. Season with salt to taste. To serve, slice diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Makes 6 servings
