It’s Barbecue season! Try this Marinated Steak! 


1.5 pounds of shoulder or flank steak

1 cup sugar-free teriyaki sauce

1 cup Diet Coke 

1 onion, diced

3 cloves garlic, diced 

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon hot sauce – optional  

Salt and pepper to taste 



  1. Lightly score both sides of steak in a crisscross pattern. Place steak in a large ziplock bag.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine teriyaki sauce, Diet Coke, onion, garlic, vinegar and hot sauce (if you are using it), whisking well to combine.
  3. Set aside 1/2 cup of marinade for later. Pour rest of the marinade over the steak in the ziplock bag; seal bag and turn over a few times to thoroughly coat. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  4. Let steak and marinade sit at room temperature for 15 minutes. Remove steak from bag.
  5. Season steak on both sides with salt and pepper. Place steak on a preheated barbecue grill and grill for 6 minutes on medium heat. Turn steak, brush with reserved marinade and broil for 6 minutes more. Steak will be medium rare.
  6. Allow steak to rest for 10 minutes. Carve steak into thin slices and serve.
