Marinated Grilled Flank Steak with Cherry Tomatoes and Basil
This recipe serves: 4  
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 shallots, finely chopped
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup dry red wine
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds flank steak
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup finely sliced red onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Cooking Instructions
1. In a mixing bowl, combine the garlic, shallots, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, red wine, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.

2. Place the flank steak in a shallow bowl and pour the marinade over it. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight.

3. Preheat the grill to high.

4. Grill the flank steak for 4 to 8 minutes on each side, depending on the desired doneness. Let the steak rest on a carving board before slicing.
