Teriyaki Marinated Steak

This easy and delicious teriyaki marinade turns ordinary flat iron steak into a flavorful, Asian-inspired delight!


  • Flat Iron Steak 1"thick  ·  1 pound 
  •  ·   
  • For the Marinade:  ·   
  • Soy Sauce  ·  2 cups 
  • Herbie's Ginger Powder  ·  2 tablespoons 
  • Herbie's Garlic Powder  ·  2 tablespoons 
  • Honey  ·  1/3 cup 
  • Brown Sugar  ·  1/2 cup 
  •  ·   
  • Vegetable Oil  ·  1 ounce 
  • Brazilian Spice Blend  ·  2 tablespoons 
  • Water  ·  1 tablespoon 
  • Cornstarch  ·  1 tablespoon 


Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a saute pan or sauce pot. Bring the mixture to a boil while whisking. Once the mixture comes to a boil, remove from the heat. Place the steak in a plastic container that can be stored in the refrigerator, pierce the steak with a fork on both sides and pour the warm marinade over the steak.

Let the steak marinate in the refrigerator uncovered for at least 30 min. flipping it half way through. You could also let the marinade cool completely, add to the steak, cover and let it marinade in the refrigerator over night.

Once the steak is done marinating, start by pre heating one side or your grill to high and leave the other side of your grill off for indirect heating.

Take the steak out of the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Reserve the teriyaki marinade for the sauce. Season the steak with Herbie's Brazilian Spice Blend.

Using a pair of tongs and some paper towels, soak the paper towels in 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and lightly coat the grill to prevent sticking. Place the steak on the grill over high heat and sear for 2 min on each side. Once you are done searing the second side move the steak to the indirect cooking side of the grill and cook with the lid on for about another 2min. for medium rare or 5min. for medium well. Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for at least 10min.

To make the sauce add the rest of the marinade to a saute pan and heat over high heat. Mix the cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Once the sauce begins to boil, whisk in the cornstarch "slurry". The sauce should thicken right away.

Serve immediately and enjoy with Embrace Grenache.

Tommy's Tips:

Don'e have a grill? No worries! This recipe can just as easily be done on a flat top griddle or in a heavy bottomed saute pan or cast iron. Pre heat your oven to 375 degrees. Follow the first 4 steps, then instead of oiling the grill add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to a pan or griddle. Once the oil begins to shimmer add the steak and sear for 2 min. on each side. Then finish cooking it in the oven until your steak has reached your desired doneness.
