Scott's notes for this recipe:
Flank steak is a delicious cut of beef and is often stuffed or rolled, yet I’m here to tell you that it’s an often-misused piece of beef. Unless properly treated this delicious piece of beef can come out as tough as shoe leather or as crispy as overcooked bacon.

The biggest tip is to marinate the flank steak overnight to tenderize it and bring out its flavor. It cooks up quick over high heat on the grill but is equally delicious smoked low and slow. This recipe can be used in either case but I’m going to showcase grilling to bring out the tenderness of this steak.

I usually cook two pieces of flank, and save one for the next days sandwiches.

Scott, would you recommend broiling these? I'm not big on griling out in Wisconsin in the Winter. I'm looking forward to trying your marinade.
user Scott Anderson Chef_Scott - Jan 10, 2011
Broiling will work just fine. High heat in the beginning, flip and sear and then low and slow

Thanks. I am on the way to the supermarket for the steak.
