Flank Steak/Fajita Marinade

1/2 c. tomato juice
1 tsp (ish) chopped garlic
1/2 c. soy sauce
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp pepper
If you are making flank steak stop here. If you are making fajitas add:
juice of 4 limes

Combine all ingredients in a gallon ziploc. Add flank steak or chicken. Marinate at least 8 hours. Do not discard marinade!! Grill the steak outside or if you don't have one you can broil it in your oven.You want the middle to still be pink because it will still cook a little while you let it sit. Let it sit for about 10 minutes (covered with foil) before you slice it. Meanwhile bring the remaining marinade to a rolling boil, slice meat very thin against the grain and serve with the marinade poured over it.
For flank stake I serve this with roasted red potatoes or a rice pilaf (I love the Near East brand), a salad, and sometimes a vegetable.
