Grilled Sesame Flank Steak
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.

How to Make Grilled Sesame Flank Steak
- On a preheated grill over medium high heat (375 F), first sear the flank steak on each side, approximately 1-2 minutes per side. Continue cooking 6 minutes per side, turning once. When the internal temperature reaches desired doneness, remove from grill and rest of at least 8-10 minutes under a piece of aluminum foil tented over the top. Resting allows the juices to pull back into the meat before carving.
