    This was very quick and easy with great assertive flavors. Made to recipe except used fresh garlic. Would love to have again, with the steaks on the bbq rather than the George Foreman.

    I really loved the flavor of the meat. The relish was also tasty. Very good together.

    This was a great weeknight meal.. easy prep and easy cleanup. It was also a nice flavor change from a lot of other recipes. I served with roasted potatoes and a bit of sauteed baby spinach.

    Very good. I made as directed except that I drizzled some lime juice on the steak about 20 min. before cooking. My most favorite flank steak recipes are more Mexican in orientation (and that Merlot Rosemary one, too), but this is delicious. Next time I'd double the relish.

    I just made this last night. It was delicious. I was a little skeptical about the cucumbers but the crunch with the steak was nice! I would definitely make this again. I served it with brown rice. The relish is delicious and actuallly I could eat it alone. I made it exactly as the recipe stated.

    This meal is super quick. I served it with wild rice. The highlight is the relish. I thought the steak was a little bland. I usually marinate flank steak, so this recipe didn't carry enough flavor through the meat for me. I think the relish dressing would be good on a greek salad or the relish could be boosted to a salad with a few other additions like tomatoes and onions.

    Excellent. Second time I made it cut up the cucumbers and pepperoncinis a bit smaller. Not only used it with flank steak for meat eaters, but also great with a variety of vegetarian fake meat products such as Morningstar Farms sausages, grillers prime, etc. Highly recommend.

    Made this tonight. BF couldn't get enough. I broiled the steak for 4 min on each side for the perfect medium rare. Also made the dill-yogurt dip. Just added a bit more dill and lemon juice. Perfect compliment with the steak.

    Very good. I accidentally used a zucchini rather than a cucumber--but it was still great!

    Made the steak with the relish as well as the pita with yogurt dip. Served all together this made for a quick and easy light dinner. I've also substituted the steak for sauteed herbed chicken breasts and this was delicious as well.

    The whole family loved it! I will definitely be making it again. Preparation was very easy, and nearly everything can be made in advance if necessary. The leftovers are great for lunch, and it won't be in the fridge for long.

    This was awesome! My husband said its one of his top 3 favorite meals...thats impressive! I substituted the feta for pepperjack and served it on a bed of rice...yum! This was quick, easy and delicious.

    Quick, easy, delicious! Great for everyday dinner. I followed the recipe exactly and loved it. My husband even liked it and he doesn't like cucumbers.

    This was really good! I don't usually do "pickled" anything but it wasn't overpowering. Good easy dinner

    Pretty good and easy! Loved the relish.

    I had most of these ingredients on hand, so I made this dish tonight. I used banana peppers instead of pepperoncini, which probably resulted in a milder relish, but I loved it. I would make the relish again for sure, and this was a simple way to cook flank steak without the grill. Also didn't have fresh parsley, which would have been even better, but threw in some dried. Had roasted potatoes with this. An elegant, quick weekday meal.

    This is a tasty good flank steak. I really liked the relish, and so did my husband and sons. I broiled it 4 minutes per side and served it with rice.

    I was surprised how much I liked this. I think I'd like a little bit more pepperocini taste in the relish, otherwise - delish!

    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.
