I've made many Cooking Light flank steak recipes and this one is right up there with the best of them. I used fresh garlic and really rubbed it in on both sides of the steak and let it rest for about 10 minutes before I put it on our Traeger grill. The relish is a great accompaniment to the beef. I served this with sliced tomatoes and avocado and whole wheat pita bread with a little hummus. Really good, really easy, really filling.
Flank Steak with Cucumber-Pepperoncini Relish
Serve a simple steak dinner topped with a peppery veggie-and-cheese relish. Pepperoncini peppers are yellow, wrinkled, and slightly spicy; we use both the chopped pickled pepper and pickling liquid to flavor the crunchy relish.
