If you haven't tried flank steak yet, you are missing out. This lean, more affordable cut is full of flavor and with the right technique is tender and delicious. The key to making a tasty flank steak is marinating the steak first to make the steak more tender and then cutting it very thin against the grain. This ensures it isn't chewy and truly is essential to making flank steak a cut of beef you will love.
While you can marinate the steak in almost anything, sometimes simple is best like in this recipe. The flank steak is marinated in balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic, and herbs and kept in the fridge overnight. Then it is quickly cooked under the broiler (you could also grill it) until it is nicely charred on the outside and tender on the inside. Paired with a quick oven roasted tomato salad - it's one delicious dish you will make over and over again.

- 1.33 lbs. lean flank steak
- 1.5 tbsp. olive oil
- 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 2 U garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp. dried rosemary
- 1 tsp. dried oregano
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 4 U tomatoes, quartered
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. oregano
- 1/4 cup basil
- Cooking spray
- Salt and pepper
Mix together the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, rosemary, oregano, salt, and pepper. Marinate the steak in this mixture for at least 1 hour up to 24 hours.
When ready to cook, preheat the broiler. Spray the tomatoes with cooking spray and sprinkle with garlic powder, oregano, salt, and pepper.
Cover a broiler pan with foil. Remove the steak from marinade, letting excess drip off. Place the steak in the middle of the rack and cook for 4-6 minutes per side for medium. When you flip the steak, add the tomatoes to the pan as well.
To grill: Grill the steak for 4-6 minutes per side for medium. When you flip the steak, add the tomatoes directly to the grill or in a grill basket and cook until warmed and beginning to char.
Let the steak rest for five minutes before serving. Slice against the grain into thin strips. Roughly chop the tomatoes and toss with basil. Serve with the steak.
