2 cups cheese, shredded

Flank Steak (London boil) Marinate

I know I know, I have been horrible about posting new recipes. I don't really have a reason just haven't made time for it I guess. So today is my dad's birthday and we all gave him money for a new grill... so what is on the menu you ask??? Well some things that can be grilled of course! This recipe is from my grandma Love and I absolutely love it. It is simple and easy.

3/4 cup Salad Oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 TBS Honey
2 TBS Vinegar
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ginger
1 onion chopped.

Soak any meat in this overnight then Cook... or grill in this case...
