I'm not a huge fan of horseradish but the sauce was great.  I added some onion powder to the salt and pepper on the steak and grilled it on our Traeger with hickory pellets.  10 minutes per side.  Added a nice smokey quality to the meat.  Will definitely make again - so easy!

One of my friends made this for our Cooking Light group. The meat itself was just OK. I would much prefer it grilled on the bbq. The sauce, however, was very good. It could be used on steak, chicken or fish, so I am keeping mostly for the sauce.

Sauce makes a good combination with the steak.

Absolutely delicious. Broke out the bbq for the first time this season and grilled the flank steak to a perfect medium rare. The lemon sauce was so delicious. Also served the browned better asparagus from the same issue and saffron new potatoes. My family called this meal a perfect 10. Great for Spring - so fresh tasting. Poured a rose. Sunday heaven.

The sauce is a great contrast to the steak, I used it the next day on roast beef sandwiches and it was excellent.

Good solid steak recipe! I used flat iron steak but the sauce has a delightful kick to it against the simply seasoned steak. I put it with potatoes and fresh peas. Another great recipe Cooking Light!!
