Balsamic and red wine vinegars give this steak a tangy kick.
1/4 cup chopped shallots
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper, divided
1 (1-pound) flank steak, trimmed
1/4 teaspoon salt
How to Make It
Combine first 3 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; add 1/2 teaspoon pepper and steak. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
Prepare grill or broiler.
Remove steak from bag; discard marinade. Sprinkle steak with 1/2 teaspoon pepper and salt. Place steak on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 6 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices.
Good marinated flank steak recipe. As my title indicates, since the ingredients are basics they're always in my kitchen. Like another reviewer stated, 4 hours of marination is adequate. I usually serve with mashed sweet potatoes (flavored with a little ground ginger and minced candied ginger) and steamed haricot vert.
Although not fabulous like the bourbon marinated flank steak, this was very good. I marinated the meat about four hours, which was enough to give it a nice tang. Time given in recipe seems way too long; I usually do a steak about 3-4 per side. The sweet potatoes and the corn-snap pea salad suggested in the magazine as side dishes were great!
