  1. Place the steak in a large baking dish. Add all but 1/4 cup of marinade and turn the  steak to coat evenly. Marinate for at least 30 minutes at room temperature or cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to 1 day, turning occasionally. Cover and refrigerate the reserved marinade.
  2. Prepare the barbecue for medium-high heat.
  3. Grill the steak to desired doneness, 8 to 10 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer the steak to a cutting board and let stand 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. To serve: Cut the steak across the grain into 1/2-inch-thick slices and transfer the steak slices to plates or a platter. Pour the accumulated juices from the steak over the slices and serve the reserved marinade alongside to drizzle over the steak slices.

Make-Ahead: The steak can marinate up to 1 day, covered and refrigerated.
