My family and friends love this and ask for it at dinner and cookouts. I always make extra and that is even gone by the end of the meal - you just keep wanting one more piece. If there are any leftovers, they are great in a salad or sandwich. This is an inexpensive cut of meat that is tender and delicious and may surprise you.

After the steak is grilled, it's perfectly tender. This will be a big hit with your guests and your wallet.

How To Make grilled flat iron steak

    Place in an airtight container or Ziploc bag. Add Italian dressing. Marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Grilling the steak.
    Place on grill over medium heat for about 6 minutes on each side for a medium (pink center) doneness.
