Feel free to substitute another cut of steak for the flank steak if desired. Strip steak, rib-eye, and tenderloin would all be good substitutions. You can also use the marinade for pork or chicken. As an alternative to keeping the steak whole and then slicing it after grilling, try cutting it into cubes prior to marinating, and then grilling the cubes on skewers as kabobs. You can alternate the cubes with peppers, mushrooms, and onions.
