Grilled Flank Steak is a tender beef steak marinated in a balsamic vinegar-based marinade and seared to perfection. It is delicious in steak fajitas, on a steak salad with bleu cheese, or with a loaded baked potato and a side of grilled asparagus. This is one of my favorite grilled beef recipes, and it could not be any easier.

How To Make grilled flank steak

  • 1
    In a large Ziploc bag or bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, Worcestershire Sauce, brown sugar, lime juice, mustard, and black pepper. Add flank steak and marinade in the refrigerator from 6 hours to overnight. Turn several times.
  • 2
    Preheat the grill to high (around 450 degrees). Using tongs remove the steak from the marinade and place it on the grill. Discard leftover marinade. Cook for 4-5 minutes; flip once and cook another 4-5 minutes or until the desired doneness. Try not to disturb the steak and let it sear.
  • 3
    Remove it from the grill and cover it with an aluminum foil tent. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes. Using a serrated or sharp long knife, slice against the grain at a sharp diagonal. Season with kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste.
