I would have to say that flank steak grilled is one on the best way’s to fix an easy steak dinner. It only takes a little prep time and it cooks up in a snap on a hot grill. The sides that go with this Flank Steak are endless. With the prep being easy and quick you can plan out dinner for a few days and use this when your running short on time.
Flank Steak Grilled
I use a zip type plastic bag to marinate this dish in. Nice and easy without having to do a lot of work flipping the meat over to get the flavors throughout the meat.
Get your timer out for this dish, it helps with keeping track of your cooking time.
A little Grill Mates Chipotle & Roasted Garlic Seasoning
1/3 cup dehydrates onions
ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
tbs diced garlic
Place all the spices and tomato juice in the zip bag and let it stand for 30 minutes. This gives the dry items a little time to mix with the wet.
Place the meat in the bag and remove as much of the air as you can. You can use a straw to suck the air out of the bag without contaminating the contents or looking silly and making a mess.
Marinate for a few hours (2 to 4) in the refrigerator
Take the meat out of the refrigerator about 45 minutes before it is grill time. The meat cooks better when it is close to room temperatures, less time of course if it is real hot out.
Get your grill up and ready, nice and hot. This part is very important for searing the meat and keeping the juices inside.
Cook on the first side for 5 to 7 minutes depending on the thickness of the flank steak. Cook it longer if you don’t like your steak on the medium rare side of life.
Flip the steak over. You’re only going to do this once. Repeat the cooking time.
Remove from the heat and let it rest for 5 minutes.
Slice the meat across the grain like the picture shows and at an angle. Serve immediately before it gets cold.
Always a winner for dinner, one of the nice things is you can change up the marinate with your favorite ingredients. If there are any leftovers you will find that the sliced flank steak make one heck of a sandwich the next day. I like it on toast with a little Mayo and a tomatoes slice or two.
