I love a good steak and this Grilled Balsamic Flank Steak satisfies every craving when it comes to some delicious grilled meat. Marinating the steak briefly in balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic, and thyme adds a ton of flavor and also tenderizes the steak. You could you any herb or combination of herbs you like, but I love how thyme pairs with balsamic vinegar.

Then the steak is quickly grilled and thinly sliced for an easy and healthy dinner. One tip about cutting flank steak, make sure to cut against the grain to keep the steak from being chewy. This normally means cutting across the width of the steak as opposed to the length of the steak. This simple step makes a huge difference when it comes to texture and will ensure a tender steak.
