Flank steak is an inexpensive meat that, with proper handling, can be incredibly delicious and tender.
There are basically 4 things that are crucial. If you do this it will be hard to fail.
1) It’s important to marinate the flank steak for at least 5 hours. I just change up the marinade flavors, depending on what I’m making.
2) Cook the meat over high heat. It’s best grilled, but you can fry it up in a pan (preferably cast iron), or broil it. It cooks up fast, typically 8 minutes per side.
3) Be sure to allow the meat to rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
4) Cut the meat against the grain, as this will further insure a delicious, melt in your mouth quality.
Here are two great marinades to try and they work just as well with chicken as they do with beef!
