What is flank steak?

Flank steak is a cut that we make often in our house. It's an inexpensive piece of beef that's lean and very flavorful. Flank steak can be tough so you want to make sure that you treat it properly. One of the many reasons that I love it so much is it's on the thinner side, which means it cooks quickly for those nights when dinner needs to happen fast.

How do you make flank steak?

Marinating and grilling is our favorite way to cook a flank steak. You can throw together this quick marinade below the night before or in the morning. Stick your steak in and let the marinade do its thing until you're ready to throw the flank steak on the grill. It cooks quick and easy. Slice against the grain for extra tenderness and serve on top of a big garden fresh salad, alongside mashed potatoes and veggies, or with pasta.
