Grilled Flank Steak

  • Add the flank steak to the bag with the marinade, press out the excess air from the bag, and seal tightly.
  • Massage in the marinade around the meat, place the bag on a bowl and refrigerate overnight. Turn bag to the other side, half way through the marinade process (allow both sides to marinade).
  • Take out the flank steak out of the refrigerator.
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat, then place the flank steak on the grill. Cook for about 4 minutes and turn the steak, and cook for another 4 minutes (create grill marks). Flip over the flank steak and continue cooking until desired doneness (Rare: 120-130 °F, Medium-rare: 130-140 °F, Medium: 140-150 °F, Well-done: 150-165 °F).
  • Transfer flank steak to a cutting board and cover with aluminum foil. Let the steak rest for 10 minutes.
  • Slice against the grain into strips. And Voila! Enjoy!
