Introduction

Flank steak is lean, affordable and flavorful, but it's often tough. Marinade it and cut against the grain to keep it as tender as it is tasty! Flank steak is lean, affordable and flavorful, but it's often tough. Marinade it and cut against the grain to keep it as tender as it is tasty!
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1/2 cup salsa
    1 clove of garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 lime
    1 flank steak (about 1 lb)


Directions

1. Put the salsa, garlic, olive oil, and the juice of the lime in a zip top plastic bag. Shake around to mix ingredients.

2. Add the flank steak to the bag. Seal the bag while pressing out as much air as possible. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

3. When ready to cook, remove the steak from the bag, discarding marinade.

4. Grill or broil the flank steak to medium or medium rare. Don't overcook - flank steak can get very tough and unappetizing if overcooked.

5. Let it rest for 10 minutes, and slice the meat against the grain into thin slices.

Serves 4.

    I added Red,Green,Yellow Pepper/Onion blended veggies and put it all in the slow cooker, then shredded the flank steak. Will definitely make again. - 8/24/08

    Very good! Instead of marinating, I put all the ingredients in the slow cooker, and added green peppers and onions. I then threw in baby carrots after the first couple of hours. YUM!!! Very tender and ended up with a yummy "sauce" to serve over the meat! - 7/31/10

    Super easy to orep and make. I wasn't sure how long it would take to broil - took about 10 min per side of the steak. Make sure it's pretty rare when you take it out becuase it'll cook a little bit more when it sits for 10 min (covered with foil on top of the stove, still on broiler pan) - 2/24/09

    This sounds like a great variation of marinaded flank steak. I make an oriental version that we love. The really nice thing, put the marinade together, zip it up in an airtight bag and then freeze. The marinade works even longer on the meat as it thaws and makes for extremely tender meat. - 6/13/13
