Awesome...My husband wife was kind enough to send over some flank steak she made. Although it was good, it needed some doctoring up. So I mixed the marinade and set it in the fridge and then refried it a little, mainly to heat up and get the sauce smooth. It was absolutely fantastic wrapped up in a flatbread. We will definately make this again and share this recipe. Thanks Paula, we will always support you, ALWAYS!

Our Supper Club will be serving your Chocolate Marinated Flank Steak in February for our Valentine's Dinner. My "covered dish" is to provide the wine for our dinner. Any suggestions for this main dish?
