My dad was the great griller in our family! It was something he enjoyed and I think , he took this role pretty seriously. He always had his hat , apron and tongs at the ready! I smile at the thought of dad coming in and saying what should we grill for dinner today? When it was to be special, it was a flank steak! My dad would marinate the steak for hours. We actually are not quite sure what dad had in his marinade. I actually think he changed it every time he made it. I would try to peek , but it was his secret marinade. We would just call it John’ wild and crazy marinade. It tasted like it had a little bit of everything. I’m sure it even included a splash of scotch from the glass in his hand! All I know is that those were the best steaks and memories I ever had. That’s the beauty of marinades, it’s the time you could let your freak flag fly a bit with creativity. I , of course ,have tried to recreate dad’s marinade over the years and this is what I’ll share with you in honor of dad and father’s day. I suggest you use this as a jumping off point and play around with your own version of this to create fond food memories for your family and friends this summer.
