This time of year is one of transition. Summer is ending, Fall is beginning. Kids are starting back to school, and football season has begun. And suddenly there is “pumpkin spice” flavored drinks and foods everywhere you look! As much as I’d like to throw on my favorite sweater and a cute pair of boots, and frolic in the cool, Autumn air, there is no “cool Autumn air” to be found! Temperatures are still soaring in the upper 80’s, and everyone is still wearing shorts and t-shirts.

So what do we do when we’re mentally prepared for cooler temperatures and Fall flavors, but we’ve still got a few weeks of summer heat left? We come up with recipes that combine the best of both worlds! This Maple Glazed Flank Steak is the perfect solution. It’s still warm enough to get outside and grill, but you get the delicious maple flavor that makes your taste buds think of Autumn. As an added bonus, this juicy, tender steak is packed with flavor, but low on calories! Each serving only has 234 calories, so you can enjoy another pumpkin spice latte without feeling guilty.

 

Maple Glazed Flank Steak

1⁄4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1⁄4 cup red wine vinegar

1⁄4 cup maple syrup

3 tablespoons olive oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

11⁄2 lb flank steak, trimmed

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but overnight is best. Remember to turn bag at least once.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  3. Remove steak from bag, and discard marinade. Grill steak 5 to 6 minutes per side or to desired degree of doneness.
  4. Let stand 5 minutes, and slice steak across the grain. Divide into 6 servings.

Lindsay Allen is a 27 year old living in Birmingham, Alabama with her amazing husband Blake and their dog Jazzy. The two have been married 5 years and are currently in the process of adopting a child from Burundi, Africa! Lindsay graduated from Auburn University in 2010 with a degree in Choral Music Education. She loves the Auburn Tigers, and you can find many Gameday recipes on her blog, Normal Cooking. Lindsay started Normal Cooking in 2012, after 2 years of prompting from her husband. When they were first married, she had never cooked a day in her life! She had gotten used to mac and cheese and cans of Chef Boyardee in college, but she wanted to feed her husband better than that. So she began collecting recipes from the internet and quickly learned that she actually enjoyed cooking! She also learned that most food blogs cater to a specific niche: vegan, gluten-free, dieting, etc. So she created Normal Cooking to provide a source for easy, budget-friendly, family recipes for the normal, everyday lifestyle.
