My husband loved this simple, but flavorful recipe for flank steak! This is easy and super fast to make in a cast iron skillet with a resulting tender and meaty entree that is nothing short of restaurant quality. The only modification I had to this recipe was for the herbs - the store was out of tarragon, so I omitted; but use fresh if you can to amp the flavor to its full potential! My husband raved about this one - super easy and simple to make. Served with broccoli and C.L's fontina and mascarpone baked penne. 100% a keeper; we will be making this recipe again - Enjoy!
Roasted Flank Steak with Olive Oil-Herb Rub
Brushed with a rub of fresh herbs flavored with olive oil and lemon zest, this flank steak is roasted with red wine-laced broth, adding up to lots of flavor with little fuss. Leftovers, if there are any, make great steak sandwiches!

- Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.
- Sprinkle salt and pepper over steak. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add steak to pan; cook 1 minute on each side or until browned. Add wine and broth; cook 1 minute. Spread herb mixture over steak; place pan in oven. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Serve with pan sauce. Garnish with fresh thyme sprigs, if desired.
- To serve two, use two (four-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks instead of flank steak, reduce the herbs to 1/2 teaspoon each, and omit the broth. Finish the tenderloin in the oven for two minutes instead of 10.
