Flank steak is a great cut of meat that when prepared correctly should be tender and juicy. I love to pair this recipe with my Mushroom Risotto and garnish the risotto with fresh tomatoes and basil.
Flank steak is a great cut of meat, it is similar to skirt steak, however, it is leaner and less marbled with fat. Flank steak is really very lean, which makes it a versatile meat. You can marinate it or use rubs with it, but the best way to ensure your steak is tender is to slice it thin.
I like to use flank steak for fajitas or stir fry, but it can also be delicious on the grill cooked to medium rare. I found cooking it to medium rare is the best for a tender texture and an excellent flavor.
Always cut flank steak across or against the grain, cutting it any other way will make the meat very chewy and tough to eat.
