Summer BBQ-Grilled Flank Steak

Flank steak is a cut of beef taken from the abdominal muscles or lower chest of the steer.  Typically it is used for fajitas but if you marinate it, it becomes a flavorful piece of meat. You can add to a salad, create a chimichurri sauce to drizzle on top, stir fry with vegetables and many more options. I marinated this cut for 2 days which made it tender and very flavorful.

Flank Steak and ingredients for marinade

Grilled Marinated Flank Steak

Create a tender flank steak by marinating for 2 hours or overnight. The longer you marinate, the more tender the meat will be. Make sure to grill to medium rare; let sit to rest for 15 minutes and then cut against the grain.
