  • 1/2 cup red wine (or more if you like a strong wine flavor)

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in the same amount of water (use tapioca starch if you’re grain-free)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons stone ground mustard (dry mustard works if you’re in a pinch)
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tablespoon onion powder
  • 3 pounds flank steak


Directions:

Add all ingredients except flank steak to blender and run until smooth, reserve 1 cup for basting and dipping.

Pour remaining marinade over steak and refrigerate in a shallow pan or ziploc bag for at least 24 hours. (I like to freeze mine in the marinade for later.)

Cook on a medium heat grill, basting continually, for 3-5 minutes on each side, or until you reach desired doneness. (This can also be done under the broiler in your oven).
Allow to rest 2 minutes before cutting.

FRIDAY

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Ingredients

  • Balsamic dressing
  • Walnuts chopped
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Fresh blueberries
  • Red onion thinly sliced
  • Blue cheese crumbled
  • Fresh spinach and/or arugula I like a mix of the two

Instructions
Layer ingredients into mason jars in the order listed in the desired amounts.

Seal tightly with a lid and store in the refrigerator.

When you're ready to eat, check and make sure your jar is sealed tightly, then give it a good shake to distribute the dressing evenly.

Eat directly from the jar, or pour into a bowl.
