Marinade:
2/3 cup dry red wine
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce, preferably Kikkoman
2 tablespoons mild olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 beef flank steaks (2 pounds each),
marinated in marinade overnight


To make the marinade, combine all the ingredients in a shallow 14-inch
glass baking dish and stir until the honey is dissolved. Add the flank steaks
and turn to coat with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Bring the steaks to room temperature. Prepare coals for grilling or preheat
the broiler. Drain the steaks, reserving the marinade. Place the marinade in
a large skillet and bring to a boil over high heat. Continue boiling until the
liquid is syrupy and mahogany-colored, about 10 minutes. Remove from the
heat and let cool. (There should be about 1 cup of glaze.)

Brush the glaze on both sides of the steaks. Grill or broil the steaks 4 inches
from the heat until nicely glazed, about 5 minutes. Turn and grill or broil 5
minutes longer for medium-rare steaks. Let the meat rest for 5 minutes
before carving.

Transfer the steaks to a cutting board. If you broiled the steaks, reserve
any pan drippings. Holding a sharp knife at a 45-degree angle, cut the steaks
across the grain into thin slices. Transfer the meat to a warmed platter, top
with the pan drippings, and serve immediately.
