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 quickly 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.

This is a fabulous method of cooking flank steak. If not prepared properly, it tends to be a little tough. This steak is full of flavor and super tender. We let the steaks marinate for about 12 hours. The marinade is amazing. Between the oils and wine vinegar, they tenderize the meat. All the other flavors marry together and give the meat a nice flavor. Before carving, make sure to let the meat rest and cut against the grain. Serve with a green salad or grilled veggies for a fantastic meal. The Test Kitchen
